VOGLAR is the old name of the area where the vineyard of the property is located. It comes from the Trentino dialectical expression “fogolar” in Italian meaning “fire place”. Originally the vineyard was planted to schiava, a local red variety, but from 1988 to 1991 it was entirely replaced by Sauvignon Blanc. Due to my study and research on this variety, I concluded that Voglar’s site exposition, height and chalky character combined in a specific way with a white variety vineyard. The relatively high altitude of the slope favors perfect ripening, without loss of acid and varietal aromas in the grapes. My objective is to produce a wine with complex tropical-fruit aromas and not vegetal. A wine with acidity body and structure that will moderate bottle ageing.
Peter Dipoli estate was born in 1987 when the Dipoli family bought 1,2 hectares of vineyard in Penon, a hamlet near the village of Cortaccia in Alto Adige. The vineyard was completely replanted with Sauvignon Blanc and in 1990, the first 1637 bottles of Voglar were produced. In the following years, the estate was enlarged by buying some new vineyard and renting others. This is how the vineyard Iugum in the nearby village of Magre, became part of the property. In the beginning the grapes were vinified at a friend’s winery. A fundamental step was to buy an ancient, rural house in Villa, in the village of Egna, that in 1998 was restored and became the estate winery.
