Partnership de Tarczal has been part of the Small Vineyards family since 2008.

The de Tarczal vineyards were once the land of the ancient and illustrious Count Alberti family, which included one of the prince bishop’s of Trento, and came into possession of Ruggero de Tarczal’s family over a century ago.

The land was part of the dowry of Countess Alberti when she married Gèza Dell’Adami de Tarczal, admiral of the Royal Austro-Hungarian Fleet, and a direct ancestor of Ruggero. Their wine production started to flourish in the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when Marzemino was always served at the imperial court.

The vineyards are located at the mid-height of the mountains on the right side of the Adige river. As long as can be remembered, grapes have been grown on their lands, and wines produced in their cellars, with records dating back to the mid 1600’s. Their wines come exclusively from grapes grown in their vineyards, and are both limited and chosen with high selectivity, with the goal of producing only genuine, classical wines which they achieve by employing old and proven winemaking procedures.

Wine itself is wonderful, but the stories of the families and artisans who make it are equally important. Who does not want to know more about the composer, painter, singer, or writer? This is why you will find a photo of the winemaker and the story of the estate on every bottle-connecting those who make the wine with those who enjoy it.
