South Tyrolean Wine Museum

The oldest Wine Museum south of the Alps is located in the village centre of Caldaro on the Wine Road

In the oldest wine-growing region of the German speaking area rises a museum completely dedicated to this topic. It was inaugurated in 1955 in the old walls of Castel Ringberg above Lake Caldaro, and can be found today in the beautiful cellars with groined vault of the former Di Pauli Winery. It is one of the 10 Provincial Museums of South Tyrol which comprise, for instance, also the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology with Ötzi the Iceman and the South Tyrol Museum of Mining.

The Wine Museum in the centre of Caldaro (Kaltern) offers a stunning insight into the cultural history of viticulture in South Tyrol: Beautiful decorated wine barrels, vessels made from glass and ceramic, religious depictions and the figure of the "Saltner", the historic guardian of the vineyards, are on display. Impressive wine presses and other instruments show how the grapes were turned into wine. Furthermore, 30 rare wine varieties grow in the small garden. By the way: A visit to this museum is also an adventure for kids! The Saltner and the cellar ghost accompany them into the old cellars, let them taste the grapes and show the work of the cooper.
