The "Gummerhof - Malojer Wein- und Sektkellerei" winery is located in the north of Bolzano in the Italian wine-growing area of South Tyrol ( Trentino-South Ty rol region). The Gummerhof, which was first mentioned in a document in 1480, was acquired in 1880 by Joseph Trafojer, who set up a winery and distillery. The wines were delivered to the imperial court in Wien, among others. In 1948, his son-in-law Rudolf Malojer reactivated the business, which had been shut down in the meantime. Today the winery is run by his son Alfred Malojer and his wife Elisabeth, who are supported by their fifth generation son Urban and his wife Helena. There is also a vinotheque attached with a restaurant serving traditional South Tyrolean cuisine.
Their own vineyards cover six hectares, grapes are purchased from another 12 hectares. These come from the Gummerhof Gries, Gur zur Sand, Loamerhof and St. Justina vineyards. Some of the vines are cultivated using the traditional Pergel method. The white wine varieties Sylvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Ruländer (Pinot Gris), Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer, as well as the red wine varieties Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir), Lagrein, Vernatsch (Schiava Grossa), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are processed. The product range includes wines from the DOC areas Eisacktaler, St. Magdalener and Südtiroler. The heavy red wines (Riserva) are aged for 15 months in French barriques. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. Around 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
