Proudly, the Renaissance castle built by the Habsburg dynasty in 1620 rides the waves of the
surrounding vineyards. At about 20 hectares, the Vigna “Castel Ringberg” is Elena Walch’s
– and most likely also Alto Adige’s – largest single vineyard. The moderately steep vineyards
of moraine, mostly chalky but also loamy and sandy soils allow optimal cultivation for
the production of unique, varietal terroir wines. Due to the mild climate influenced by the
nearby lake and the ideal altitude of about 330 m, year after year, grapes of the best quality
are delivered to the cellar in Tramin, where the wines are pressed and aged.
Gentle pressing, followed by static clarification. A part ferments in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature (20°C). 15% of the must ferments in French oak barriques (Allier) followed by partial malolactic fermentation. The blending occurs shortly before bottling in springtime the following year.
