About us

Company details

Welcome to Peter Sölva

I Vigneti
Selection of vineyards in the classical area Oltre-Adige/ Bassa Tesina
Our Goal is to work just with a selected quality of autochthonous varieties like Schiava, Lagrein, Gewürztraminer and also with Pinot Noir to show the typical taste of these varieties from this special area in the south of our region. Taste these varieties from our selected vineyards!

Desilva - Terroir
Expression from the old vineyards
This family name has been inherited from our ancestors, to whom we feel obliged. DeSilva stands for the selection of the best grape qualities and the care of the soil in which the old vines are deeply rooted. The origin and character of our vineyards make the difference.

Amistar - Tradition
Selections with a late harvest
Uncompromising care in the vineyard and cellar technique are identified with the name of our family. Special grape-selections and particularly the vintage-blend with a fully ripe harvest are the requirements here. Amistar is a philosophy – it begins in the vineyard and is perfected in the enjoyment in the glass.
