Riff is a necogiant project, owned by Alois Lageder, that is independent of his estate wines, but reflects his expertise. A fifth generation winery owner and winemaker in the Alto Adige, Lageder’s long standing credibility with winegrowers gives him access to some of the region’s best vineyards. These top value wines are selected from vineyard sources in Italy’s northeastern Tre Venezie (Trentino-Alto Adige, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and the Veneto) — acknowledged as one of Italy’s prime regions for quality white wines and expressive reds.

Alois Lageder's great grandfather founded the winery over 150 years ago in Alto Adige, Northeast Italy. In 1934, the family acquired the Lowengang estate in Magre and continued adding other prime Alto Adige vineyards. Now in its fifth generation, the company is led by Alois Lageder. His brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, is the winemaker. Today Lageder owns 185 acres across a variety of microclimates. In the higher elevation Alpine climate, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau and Gewurztraminer grow well. Farther downhill, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco find enough warmth. In the valley floor, where temperatures exceed 90° F. in the summer, reds thrive. There are a variety of soils – mostly a mix of limestone and clay, with some volcanic porphyry. Lageder divides production into two brands – Alois Lageder and Tenutae Lageder. The wines of the Alois Lageder are made partly from grapes grown in their certified biodynamically farmed estate vineyards and partly from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected sustainable growers. Tenutae Lageder wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in the estate vineyards.
