In Vadena you can find the Province Winery (Landesweingut Kellerei Laimburg, in German), which has set itself the goal of bringing the character of the South Tyrolean grape into the glass. Its wines are divided into "Estate Wines" and wines of the "Manor Selection": While the first ones are traditional vintage wines matured mostly in stainless steel barrels and sometimes in large oak barrels, the wines of the "Manor Selection" are particularly individual wines matured in small oak barrels. They are identified by the red and gold eagle on the back of the bottle. The name Laimburg comes from the castle ruins above the Province Winery, which date back to the 13th century.
At the end of the 1980s, the "Felsenkeller" (rock-cut cellar) was set up, which allows the bottles to be stored at a constant room temperature. The space required for this was blasted out of the porphyry rock of the Monte di Mezzo. Part of it is also a 300 sq m hall with two bronze wine muses at the entrance - works of the Val Gardena artist Guido Anton Muss - which serves to present South Tyrol as a wine country on official occasions and as a representation room.
