Oltradige/Überetsch

Castles, palaces, nobel manors

Lake Kaltern favored the growth of sun-seeking varieties within its catchment area. White wines that are very fresh and racy, with strong fruit notes, grow at medium-high to high sites: Kalterer, Girlaner, St. Paulser and Eppan/Berg.

Velvety Vernatsch at Lake Kaltern, fiery Burgundy varieties

Eppan is the largest and Kaltern the second largest wine-growing community in South Tyrol; the vineyard potential is accordingly diverse. At Lake Kaltern, one of the warmest bathing lakes in the Alps, Ver natsch develops soft, velvety tannins and intense, true-to-variety cherry fruit. Here the Bordeaux varieties Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon find an ideal and warm habitat. In the breezy and cool altitudes of Eppan and St. Pauls, the noble French varieties have been growing here for over 100 years: Pinot noir, Pinot blanc, Sauvignon and Pinot gris. Chardonnay develops its complex minerality on the moraine soils of Girlan.
