The experimental vineyard at the Geyrerhof
In 2013, we of the Geyrerhof started talks with the association Tirolensis Ars Vini (TAV) regarding the creation, for research purposes, of an experimental area of about 1,000 m² at 1,300 m above sea level in the Naturidylle® as the highest-lying vineyard, where no spraying is carried out and no emissions are to be found.
Together with the Laimburg research institute, under the supervision of institute director Michael Oberhuber and the six grape farmers from the TAV, the early-ripening white wine grape Solaris was planted this summer. It is a so-called PiWi variety, with a natural resistance against the feared fungi Peronospora and mildew blight.
