Welcome to Episode 1409; part of our Italian wine interview series set in Dusseldorf, Germany. Today Joy Livingston interviews Daniel Pfitscher
Stevie Kim and her team travelled to Dusseldorf, Germany this March to collaborate with ITA, the Italian Trade Agency. ITA was organizing some incredible Masterclasses featuring the best wines Italy has to offer. Each masterclass was led by the Master Sommelier Eros Teboni (awarded Best Sommelier Worldwide in 2018), and they wanted us there to document the amazing 3 days!
Tune-in each Thursday as we bring you the great interviews that unfolded over the course of 3 days.
About today’s guest and winery:
Daniel is the Conductor, sales wizard, and marketing guru at the Pfitscher winery. In 2011 when their parents decided to move away from the village centre of Montagna to set up a new winery, their main concern was to ensure that the premises were firmly embedded in their natural surroundings whilst retaining maximum functionality. Despite, or perhaps because of its straight lines, the building was intended to sink into the background, leaving the stage clear for the real stars: nature, the landscape and… the wine. Simple shapes and a predominantly black colour scheme ensure that these leading actors are never out of sight. Through its enormous window facade, the tasting room, offers breath-taking views of the South Tyrolean lowlands and the surrounding mountains. In the cellar, a trail of colours leads the way, ending with dark blue in the Blauburgunder (Pinot noir) cellar. Definitely a must-see!
