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 Magré, 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.
Peter Dipoli was born in Laives, in the province of Bolzano, on February 25, 1954, to a farm family. He studied viticulture at San Michele all’Adige High School, worked for 5 years at the research station of Laimburg, then went back to his father’s property with the aim of creating his own vineyard estate.
At the same time Peter founded a company for the distribution of fine wines in Trentino Alto Adige.
