The winery "Georg Mumelter - Griesbauerhof" is located in the municipality of Bozen in Rentsch in the Italian wine sector South-Tirol
(Region Trentino-Alto Adige
). The estate has been owned by the family since 1785. From the First World War until the 1970s, only St. Magdalener was produced, which was sold exclusively as an open wine to Switzerland. Since 2000, only 0.75 liter bottles have been filled. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 300 meters and cover 3.5 hectares, which are planted with Lagrein, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A vineyard in Moritzing near Gries with 0.3 hectares of Lagrein has been leased since 2005. Finally, in 2008 the "Spitz" winery at the confluence of the Eisack and Adige rivers was purchased, where Merlot is grown.
