The Cora Winery is a small wine farm located directly on the South Tyrolean Wine Route, near the wine village of St. Pauls.
At the age of fifty, Lorenz San Nicoló, a geologist and entrepreneur, quit his company in Milan and started, as an autodidact, but supported by a few congenial winegrower colleagues and encouraged by his wife Elisabeth ("Sissi"), this wine adventure.
The winery is located on glacial sediments which were deposited in a glacier lake. "Kampferde" are these fertile soils called in the local language, as they were covered by massive layers of ice and are thus very strong solidified.
These unique glacial sediments and the south-east slope with intense sunshine from the early morning hours, provide ideal conditions for a heavy red wine.
The small winery is equipped with state-of-the-art cellar technology which enables a clean and careful processing of the valuable grapes.
The winery is located in the new agricultural building designed by Arch. Ute Oberrauch. Here, the sensitive combination of traditional and modern, rural and urban elements have created a central location for the entire family. Under a magnificent liberty luster from the estate of a former luxury Hotel in Merano, tractors and machines are stored, a workshop is operated as well as parties, balls and weddings of the six daughters are celebrated. The impressive chandelier is a symbol of the love of elegance and the joie the vivre that characterize the entire family of winegrowers. That's why he became the brand of the Cora Winery.
