Red Grapes

Trollinger - matures late and drunk young

This very old red variety probably originates in, and is named after, Tirol, where it is known as Schiava (Italy) and Vernatsch (Austria).

Trollinger is a grape that ripens very late and it yields fragrant, fruity, light, palatable wines with a pronounced acidity.

Once found in German wine country (primarily as a table grape), today it is planted almost exclusively in Württemberg, where it is the quaffing wine of choice, earning its position as the “Swabian national drink”.
