Alto Adige
Peter Dipoli

Peter Dipoli acquired a Master’s degree in agriculture and served as a researcher at the Instituto Sperimentale for the Alto Adige region before establishing his estate in 1987 in Pinon, a hamlet near the village of Cortaccia in Alto Adige.

After meticulously studying this area, he decided to uproot Schiava and plant Sauvignon Blanc due to the sites exposition, altitude, and soil type (chalk-based) and in 1990 the first 1637 bottles of Voglar were produced. In the following years, the estate was enlarged to include other sites including the warm clary rich vineyard Iugum (meaning “yoke”) in the village of Magré and an ancient, rural house in Villa, in the village of Egna, that in 1998 was restored and became the estate winery.

Today, he is very active in the promotion of wines from Alto Adige, and is the Vice-President of the Freie Weinbauern Südtirol - the Committee of Free Winegrowers South Tyrol.
