The wine village of Kaltern

The wine village of Kaltern can be reached from the Hotel Erzherzog Johann in about 40 minutes by car via the MeBo expressway (exit Eppan). Extending around the lake of the same name, Kaltern is one of Europe’s most beautiful wine-growing areas. Kaltern is a perfect destination at any time of year, with numerous opportunities to taste and purchase wines in its wineries. Here are some tips for you.

The Winecenter (Kellerei Kaltern)

The Winecenter of the Kellerei Kaltern winery is located on the South Tyrolean Wine Route where, in a pleasant atmosphere, you can try and buy the products of the Kellerei Kaltern and its partners. The winecenter is open seven days a week from 9 am to 7 pm (Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm).

The Erste + Neue winery

Prime importance is attached to respect for the grapes, terroir and climatic conditions. The wines are full-bodied, with finesse, reflecting their origins. The Erste + Neue winery aims to produce typical local wines rather than making forgettable “fashion” wines. Retail sales and tours (on appointment). The wine list of the Hotel Erzherzog Johann includes the Rosentropfen wine from the Erste + Neue. This is a dessert wine with aromatic fruit notes and a scent of roses that is sweet and light on the palate.

The Manincor wine estate

The wonderful south-facing slopes of this historic wine estate (dating back to 1608) overlook Lake Kaltern. The cellar extension, scarcely visible between the grapevines, sees tradition blended with forward-looking techniques to produce quality wines of character, using only grapes from the winery’s own vineyards in Terlan and Kaltern. Retail sales and tours (on appointment).
