Culture ∙ History ∙ Wine

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.

The exhibition displays exhibits of a centuries-old cultural history.

In the museum's own vineyard there are mostly grape varieties that are hardly or no longer cultivated today, including the Bozner Seidentraube, the Weiße Erdbeertraube, the Blatterle and the Gschlafene.

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.
