Weingut Klaus Lentsch

Italy

Klaus Lentsch is a descendant of a well established and respected family of growers and enologists in Alto Adige. After receiving his training and upon completion of his studies, Klaus was the cellar master for several years in his uncle’s winery, Alois Lageder. Amongst other programs, Klaus was mainly responsible for Alois Lageder’s iconic red wine Löwengang Cabernet.

In 2008, Klaus decided to leave his uncle’s winery to start his own project. He was able to to secure some premium plots around his estate Amperghof and in the much sought after Hemberghof. Klaus believes in the benefit of low intervention winemaking in order to best highlight the care and respectful treatment given to the vines in his vineyards. The result can be enjoyed in his single varietal red and white wines, displaying the full range of aromas and complexity of top quality Alto Adige vineyards.
