In their own words
The history of Cantina Kaltern (Caldaro) goes back a long way. It took more than a century for our winery to become what it is today and what it stands for: professionalism, passion, family community, experience and the highest quality standards.
Today, Cantina Kaltern is one of the most important wineries in Alto Adige, and Kaltern itself is proud of its reputation as the most popular and well-known wine village in the region. But Kaltern/Caldaro is not only a special place for wine lovers and connoisseurs from near and far. The whole village lives with and from wine. Wine is a daily companion, it gives and makes work, fills residents and winegrowers with pride and is a life's work for many here, which they pursue with great passion - in the vineyard, in the cellar, in gastronomy or in trade.
Cantina Kaltern is a large family and has 650 members, most of whom own less than one hectare of land – 0.7 ha on average. They are winegrowers by passion and earn their living mostly with other professions. They cultivate their historic vineyards with great passion. Kaltern owes a piece of its picturesque beauty to them.
For the winegrowers, it is not only a pleasure to cultivate and care for the uniquely beautiful winegrowing area around Lake Kaltern/Lago Caldaro, which has grown over centuries, but also an obligation. They want to actively contribute to preserving the natural and cultural landscape. The diverse soils and the entire ecosystem are thus protected and strengthened – and last but not least, quality wines are produced.
The wines come from the oldest DOC zone in Alto Adige. They mature in the best sites around Lake Kaltern. They are wines that are produced with a great deal of sensitivity, passion and skill – by a large community, hand-picked and with the most modern cellar technology. The wines of Cantina Kaltern epitomise the relaxed attitude to life on Lake Kaltern.
