Permanent exhibition

From grape to wine – and more ...

The permanent exhibition gives an idea of the cultural history of winegrowing in South Tyrol. Historic implements show the life and work of the winegrowers and the local winegrowing traditions, from working in the vineyards to the production and storage of wine.

The fully equipped cooper’s workshop shows a handicraft that was of great importance for a winegrowing region.

Religious representations demonstrate the numerous interfaces between wine and religion.

Drinking and transport containers, glass and ceramics round off the cultural and historical view of the long tradition of winegrowing in South Tyrol.


Deep cellar

Wine tasting in a special ambience

The deep cellar was the special pride and joy of the winegrower. It was considered an honour to be invited there.
In the South Tyrolean Wine Museum, too, the deep cellar is a special place with its own unique atmosphere where it is possible to taste wines.

The weekly guided tour ends with the tasting of a glass of Kalterer See in the deep cellar. For groups of five people or more, wine tastings from autochthonous South Tyrolean grape varieties or of wines from old grape varieties are offered upon prior notification.



Discover old grape varieties

The museum’s own vineyard contains pergolas, the typical vine-training system used in South Tyrol. Various grape varieties grow there, most of which are not (or hardly) cultivated today, among them the “Fraueler”, the “Weisse Erdbeertraube”, “Blatterle” and the “Gschlafene”.

In autumn visitors may pick and taste the grapes from the vines. The vineyard offers a panorama from the Mitterberg hill to the Leuchtenberg Castle and the Lake.
