Wine & taste suggestions for your gourmet holiday in Schenna - South Tyrol
« to overviewThe Meran Burggräfler winery »
Rametz Castle is about an hour on foot and some 15 minutes by car from the Hotel Erzherzog Johann. A wine estate, it stands on a moraine hill with well-drained soil, whose location in the Meran basin offers ideal conditions for wine growing. This special situation enables the carefully tended vineyards with their guyot vine training to produce exceptionally high-quality grapes, which are then made into outstanding wines using the latest cellaring technology.
Next to the winery is a small wine museum with four rooms displaying implements used for viticulture in former times.
The exhibits, including some now otherwise forgotten, were lovingly collected over several decades and feature tools used for soil working, harvesting and transport as well as pest control devices. There are also tools for grain cultivation and processing.
The wine museum and cellar tour, including a guided wine-tasting, takes place daily from Monday to Friday at 4.30 pm, starting from the wine shop.
