A museum with atmosphere
The South Tyrolean Wine Museum lies in the oldest winegrowing area of the German-speaking lands. Opened in 1955 in Ringberg Castle, above Lake Kaltern, it is the oldest winegrowing museum in Italy.
The museum is today located in the centre of the wine village of Kaltern, just 15 kilometres from Bozen, in the former Di Pauli winery. An interesting groined vault in the pressing rooms dates from the year 1693, while stone pointed-arch doors and a deep cellar give it a special atmosphere.
The exhibition displays exhibits of a centuries-old cultural history.
Offers for school classes
School year 2016/2017
How are barrels made? How did winegrower work in the past? School classes search for clues.
The programme for school classes is available in German or Italian.
The museum will be closing for our winter break on Friday 11th November 2016. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our visitors who have come to see us this year! The museum reopens on 1st April 2017.
Who knows this picture?
The watercolour of Albert Stolz (1875−1947) shows the Stube of the Haggenbach farm in Afing and is located in a printed version in the collection of the Folklore Museum, but without any proof of origin. The image is an important source for our ceramic research project. We would like to use it for the exhibition and the accompanying catalogue in the coming year, therefore we are looking for its owner. For suggestions please call the Folklore Museum at 0474 552087.
