Heinrich and Elda Mayr’s estate, Nusserhof was once situated on the outskirts of Bolzano, real estate has relentlessly encroached on it, but Nusserhof remains a treasure trove of local varieties. Its jewel-like, organic vineyards supply the raw material for Mayr’s beautiful, lithe yet complex white Blatterle.
