Castelfeder Winery was founded in 1970 by A. Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all’Adige and at the founding already had extensive experience as a vintner. The small private winery originally lay in the center of Neumarkt in the south of South Tyrol (ital. Alto Adige) and processed mainly red grapes of the Lagrein, Pinot Noir and Schiava varieties. In 1989 the founder’s son, Günther Giovanett (born in 1958), took over the management of the winery and at the same time, the winery was transferred to the small village of Cortina in the very south of South Tyrol (ital. Alto Adige). Today Castelfeder Winery is located in the middle of South Tyrol’s southernmost vineyards, where mostly white varieties such as Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer are grown. The enthusiasm of a wine maker begins in the vineyard with the planting of the vines, advising and working with the winegrowers and continues through the harvest and gentle pressing of the grapes in the cellar up to the vinification of the wines and finally to their marketing. The result of this difficult but rewarding job is wine to be proud of. The effort of Günther and his wife Alessandra is confirmed by the decision of their two children to change their passion into work. Ivan, the enologist of the winery, (graduated in 2005 in Enology and Wine growing) and Ines, who is still studying Enology and Wine growing in San Michele all’ Adige.
