A brief history

Castel Sallegg is a family-run firm of winegrowers in Caldaro, Alto Adige. Making our own wines mean that we are fully dedicated to Alto Adige’s winegrowing culture and we feel it is our task to bring Alto Adigeean wines to a wider audience of wine-lovers in both Italy and the world.

The family history and Castel Sallegg have been intimately connected since 1851. The estate went in direct succession from Archduke Rainer of Austria, Viceroy of Lombardy and Veneto, via the Princess of Campofranco to today’s owner, the Count von Kuenburg.

The wine tradition at Castel Sallegg has yet deeper roots. The “deep cellar” is believed to date back 1,000 years, a witness to a centuries-old tradition of winemaking! Owing to its constant temperature all year round it plays an important role in the development of the wines.

In recent years Castel Sallegg has taken the path to sustainability, using lighter, 100% Recycled glass bottles and „greener“ Packaging. Together with exclusion of herbicides and eco-friendly techniques in the vineyard, Castel Sallegg is heading towards an all-around sustainability, a journey that foresees constant commitment.
