The winery is located in the municipality of San Michele all'Adige in the Trentino area in the dual region of Trentino-South Tyrol. The Augustinian monks founded viticulture here around 1145 and cultivated those vineyards that now belong to the estate. In 1885 it was taken over by the Endrici family (in dialect "Endrizzi"). Francesco Endrici (great-grandfather of the owners) was a pioneer in introducing the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the winery is run by Dr. Paolo and Christine Endrici. Thomas Battisti is the cellar master, Vito Piffer is the responsible oenologist.
The vineyards in Trentino cover 55 hectares of vineyards planted with the white wine varieties Chardonnay, Nosiola, Pinot Bianco (Pinot Blanc) and Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris), as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Nero (Pinot Nero), Moscato Rosa (Rose Muscat), Teroldego, Lagrein, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. In this context, the establishment of songbirds in the vineyard for natural pest control as an alternative to pesticides is worth mentioning.
The wines are vinified with the aim of preserving the aromatic and varietal characteristics of the grapes. Before and during pressing, the grapes are treated with nitrogen, cold and carbonic acid to prevent unwanted oxidation. After gentle pressing, the white wine grapes are fermented using the Metodo Ganimede (special fermentation tanks). For the red wines, the gentle submersion of the marc by the fermentation carbonic acid is carried out to better release aromas and colourings. The product range includes the DOC wines Trentino and Teroldego Rotaliano, as well as the IGT wine Vigneti delle Dolomiti.
In the Tuscan Maremma area, the "Serpaia di Endrizzi" vineyard was acquired in 2000. The vineyards cover 30 hectares. There are no cellar facilities there, so the grapes are driven to the parent estate in Trentino immediately after the harvest and processed there straight away. The DOCG wine Morellino di Scansano (Morellino = Sangiovese), as well as the red wine cuvées "Serpaiolo" and "Mèria" made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese are produced.
