Weinbaugenossenschaft Mels

55 wine producers – 1 winemaker

Established in 1938, the Weinbaugenossenschaft Mels consists of 55 passionate freelance winemakers. With 10 farming hectares of vineyards, the plots are most often for generations in the family. Eight of those hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes, and the rest a mix of specialties including Riesling-Sylvaner, Chardonnay, Regent and Gamaret. The vineyards are located on the slopey hills between Holy Cross and the foot of Sargans Gonzen and are protected by the slopes of Nidbergs. One winemaker – Anton Bardellini – ensures that from these individual products a great wine is produced. Bardellini knows how to adapt to the rhythm of nature. The wines made here are excellent. Bardellini received a gold award for his Pinot Noir Barrique in 2013 at the Grand Prix du Vin Suisse. No surprise that the wines served at wedding receptions taking place in the same building are mostly his.
