The Wine: Nusserhof Elda Schiava Vino Rosso 2017

The wine is named after vignaiolo Heinrich Mayr’s wife Elda. Known locally as Vernatsch, Schiava is a thin-skinned grape native to the Alto Adige. The grapes come from a 1.5-hectare parcel on a steep slope right off the highway and are trained in Pergola.

The vines are very old and the wine is actually a field blend of many grapes both red and white, most of which the Mayrs do not know the origin of. Everything is harvested and co-fermented together.

The Producer: Nusserhof

Elda & Heinrich Mayr are the latest generation of their family to work this land, where the records date back to at least 1788. The Nusserhof gets its name from the walnut trees that once lined the house on the riverside. Not so long ago they were torn out to put in a municipal bike path. This is typical of the recent history of Nusserhof. As the years have gone by, the urban environs of the city of Bolzano have continually encroached on the estate.

On the 2.5 hectares surrounding the house, the Mayrs cultivate Lagrein and Blatterle, two native grapes of the region. There is also a tiny bit of Teroldego planted. The vines are about 50% in guyot trellising and about 50% in pergola. They also own a 1.5-hectare plot on a steep slope right off the highway. The vines, trained in pergola, are planted mainly in Schiava but are very old and actually a field blend of many grapes both red and white, most of which the Mayrs do not know the name of. The viticulture is organic, certified by the German agency Bioland.

Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy


Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

FedEx and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

If you'd like to receive a refund for a package that was returned to us after FedEx made three delivery attempts, we can do that but we must keep a $20 refund fee; FedEx charges us a lot of money for returns, unfortunately, I can't stress this enough.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $25 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders. For any change of address, please contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 1-2 days from placing the order or we cannot guarantee we'll be able to reroute or change your order's shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

Heat damage

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAT-RELATED ISSUES. WE OFFER ICE-PACKS AS ONE OF OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS. PLEASE SELECT THAT OPTION SHOULD YOU THINK THAT THERE COULD BE HEAT-RELATED ISSUES.
