Created in Weinsberg (Germany) around 1930, Kerner is a cross of Schiava and Riesling grapes. Best grown in the light, gravelly and sandy soils of high and sun-facing slopes such as those of the Cembra Valley.
Kerner is a straw-yellow wine with greenish highlights and a fresh, vibrant and aromatic nose. The palate is well-balanced, fresh and fruity, carrying delicate peach and apricot notes.
