ABOUT THE WINERY:
Falkenstein was born from the desire of Franz and Bernadette Pratzner who in 1989 decided to devote themselves exclusively to viticulture. Franz Pratzner, a winemaker of few words but full of ideas, follows his wines lovingly, as if they were children, each with a different character. He accompanies them in the cellar by choosing with great passion the path suitable for expressing their potential to the fullest and then in their development process until they are mature enough to fend for themselves. His wife Bernadette prefers contact with nature and spends most of her time taking care of the vineyards on the slopes of Monte Sole near Naturno: 12 hectares of vineyards, dry soil and ancient rocks suited to viticulture despite the dizzying slopes between 600 and 900 meters above sea level.
