Produced with 100% Gewurztraminer grapes from the company's vineyards located along the Strada del Vino in Appiano and Caldaro, this Gewurztraminer represents one of the latest creations of San Michele Appiano Winery. Its name derives from the wind "Fallwind" that blows gently on the vineyards creating the optimal microclimate for these grapes: in fact, on the label you can read the words "Ventus ferat, ventus creat" that is "the wind blows, the wind creates". The grapes grow on gravelly soils with a high calcareous and clayey concentration and are harvested at the beginning of October. Thus follow fermentation and aging phases on the yeasts in steel tanks for about 4 months.
