Just a tasty, old world wine that folks would find at an Italian Alpine café. And of course Lagrein is considered the daily drink of Südtirol! Vibrant blueberry, blackberry preserve, and strawberry notes with hints wet rock, and cherry twizzler. Just fantastic! And easy to drink.
Kellerei Kaltern has a long history. It took more than a century for the winery to become what it is and what it stands for today: professionalism, passion, a shared community, experience and the highest quality standards.
Today, Kellerei Kaltern is one of the principal wineries of Südtirol, and Kaltern itself is proud of its reputation as the most popular and best-known wine village in the region. But Kaltern is not only a special corner of the world for wine lovers and connoisseurs from near and far; village life revolves around wine. Wine sets the stage here; it is a source of employment and also of pride for the villagers and wine growers.
Wine is the mission in life for many people here, one that they pursue with great passion – be it in the vineyard, in the cellar, in restaurants and bars, or in retail. In Kaltern, wine is first and foremost synonymous with enjoyment and quality. But what makes the village on the shores of Südtirol’s largest natural lake and its wine so unique is the community behind it – the spirit, the euphoria, and the shared aspiration to draw the attention of the whole world to the wine, the village and to the natural beauty of Kaltern. In this context, Kellerei Kaltern has an eminent role to play and can rely on what makes it special: consistent quality through a united effort.
