The moderate altitude and mild climate of the Tirol Hills are ideal for the cultivation of noble vines, in a region especially suited for high quality red wines.


The landscape of Tirol is shaped by smooth valleys and gentle hills (with altitudes between 220 - 290 m) forming plateaus at different heights. Orchards, pastures and ancient forests surround the vineyard. The deer browse to the chirping of birds and the hum of bees while deep down, fossils are trapped in Tortonian rocks formed millions of years ago.


Characteristic for the Banat hills, the skeletal soils – eroded brown podzols sitting on gravel layers, leached rendzina soils and rendzinic regosols (podzols, reddish-brown and sandy soils) – are rich in iron and microelements, lending a particular brilliance to the red wines obtained here.


The temperate climate, with sub-Mediterranean influences, ensures an average annual temperature of +10 degrees Celsius, with long autumns. As a particularity of the local microclimate, in August, the temperature variation between day and night can reach over 20 degrees Celsius, with a beneficial impact on the evolution of the wine.

Climate: temperate continental, with Mediterranean influences.
Average annual temperature: 10°C.
Average temperatures per season: winter 0.5°C, spring 9.7°C, summer 19.4°C, autumn 10.4°C.
Average annual precipitation: 841.2 mm.


The wines speak of the area, reflecting, besides the natural environment, its human specificity. 
In Tirol, the history, tradition and stories of the people are intertwined with vineyards and wines.
Traditional local occupations include agriculture, orchard tending and beekeeping. But viticulture is the one that made Tirol famous. As early as 1810, historical documents show, lands for planting vineyards were allocated to the first inhabitants. A possible explanation would be that among them were families from South Tyrol, familiar with viticulture, but also the fact that a viticultural tradition already existed in the area.
Many other settlers (from Bavaria, Bohemia, Moravia, Austria, Silesia, Caraş County) came to Königsgnad. Although it is a multicultural mix, the village has kept the German language and customs, especially music and dance, accompanied by wine.
While many of the former residents left in the second half of the twentieth century, the wine tradition endured. The state-owned vineyard had a total area of 437 ha and many of the wines produced here have been awarded gold and silver medals (Cabernet Sauvingnon, Merlot, Traminer and Muscat Ottonel), making Tirol a well-known Banat wine brand.
