A Wine That
combines the heritage of Alto Adige with Martin and Marion's desire for making wine without boundaries. Tonsur, to us, always speaks of the cool breeze of the Dolomites that you can feel standing in the vineyards. A light orange wine that shows the beauty of the Alpine climate, with a gentle spritz that awakens and refreshes the palate.

Where and How?
This is made from a combination of Müller-Thurgau (55%), Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner and Chardonnay, grown at 700 metres of elevation on steep, sandy clay slopes. The grapes spend eight days on their skins in concrete, before being pressed into concrete vats, where they age for eight months. Malolactic fermentation is allowed to run its full course, which, along with the skin contact, gives a rich, creamy texture and golden orange hue.
The Winemaker: Pranzegg
Tucked away in the rolling hills of Alto Adige, you’ll find many vineyards; but a massive 95% of the grapes from these vineyards are sold to cooperatives-style wineries. However, in the remaining 5%, you’ll find a slowly-but-surely growing segment of winemakers committed to farming their own grapes and making their own wine.
Two of these winemakers are Martin Gojer and Marion Untersulzner of Pranzegg; committed to every aspect of their 3.5-hectare farm; where you’ll find not just vines, but also sheep, chickens and bees. For them, this isn’t just a job, but a way of life.
