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.

The photographs of Hugo Atzwanger (1883–1960)

Hugo Atzwanger took many pictures of buildings, people and landscapes all around South Tyrol. The photographs taken in the vineyards show the former cultivated landscape and modes of working and give an idea of the upcoming change.
