Our apple orchards
Our orchards are located in Cortina, Magrè, Ora, and Laghetti - all villages near the southern area of Bolzano (Alto Adige). Currently we grow around 7 varieties of apples with our harvest beginning in early August. To produce Iduna, we always use a blend of Braeburn and Granny Smith.
To grow highest quality fruit, a daily care of the trees is essential. In this regard, we are committed to maintain the ecological balance of the natural environment. This friendly cultivation is confirmed by the Globalgap and Agrios certifications.
The sandy and clay soils of our orchards and the dramatic change in temperature of our area's autumn allow optimal apple ripeness at harvest.
In the fall, the fruits of a year of devotion are carefully hand-picked by the entire Maffei family and then refined in the farm's small winery in Cortina sulla strada del vino. The result of this craftsmanship is IDUNA.
