In the year 1629 Simon Mayr „Kuchenmayr“ from Völs am Schlern purchased the Unterganznerhof. The Mayr family have lived and worked there for more than ten generations. The property has always been passed on from father to son, that is why it is called „an inherited estate“. This estate is a typical example of the South Tyrolean closed farm system. Only through generations of experience, dedication, devotion and solidarity on the estate, it is possible to produce such supreme quality wine in its present form.
