Life at Manincor
A living community. How we live our lives at Manincor.
Air, light, sky and space plus soil, plants and animals: The winery is filled with potential and full of life. Our family reflects this diverse community of life.
Since our wedding in 1991 we have lived surrounded by vineyards on the historical Manincor Estate. Our three children were born in Bolzano and enjoyed a carefree and happy childhood here. It is a life with a cat and dog, and with chickens and sheep that grounds our family. For many people, life on a farm is a dream. St. Josef am See is a very small place, with just 300 inhabitants. Yet there is a kindergarten and an elementary school, where our children received a very natural basic education. Having completed their schooling, they are now acquiring experience in the world of wine abroad. For several years now, we have been preparing for the day when they will take over the business – with the goal of shaping the future of Manincor on the basis of our traditional values.

THE MANINCOR EXPERIENCE
cellar-door sales, tastings & guided tours
Guided tours and rarities.Would you like to get to know us? Are you looking for rarities or are you just curious? Come ad see us! Nevertheless: once you have turned in from the "Weinstrasse” to come to us for the first time you will quickly succumb to our charm. Resistance is pointless!
Our wine shop is one of the most attractive along the entire South Tyrolean Wine Route. You will be impressed by the symbiosis between our delicious wines, the old and modern architecture, as well as by the fantastic view of the Lake of Kaltern and – depending on the whim of nature – by the selection of farmstead products: organic apples, homemade jams, liqueurs, our varieties of fine wine chocolates. If you would like a guided tour we would be grateful for advance notice (you could easily be guided through our “Cellar concealed beneath the Vineyard” by Countess Sophie personally).
Don’t be surprised to hear clucking, mooing or bleating, it’s not the wine’s fault. Our “lords of the manor”, our hens, have recently been joined by sheep.
