From Winemaking to Building: Traversing New Paths

Modern Accents between Old Walls

More and more frequently, Alto Adige wine draws attention to itself not just with outstanding products, but also with artistic buildings. Since the point in time when Alto Adige wines managed the leap from simple table wines to outstanding, noble wines, many wineries have also presented themselves accordingly.

Where the Gothic and Renaissance styles once shaped Alto Adige’s winery buildings, today modern tendencies distinguish themselves between historical walls. Within that context, the connection with tradition is maintained and is shown in the melding of old constructions with fresh ideas. A symbiosis that is rich in contrasts and yet harmonious: the ideal framework for moments to enjoy!

With the “Fels” [“Cliff”] façade made of Dolomite, the Cantina Kurtatsch has added an outstanding architectural emphasis to its building. It is the core of the expansion work that is being accompanied by the architects “Dell‘Agnolo-Kelderer”. An inviting wine bar, the original Dolomite wine cellar, and the innovative TERROIR route all go to show: terroir is alive and well here.

Sustainability claims its reward! In 2012, the Pfitscher Estate Winery in Montagna was the first winery to be climate certified. With the motto “Keep the tradition, dare to try the new”, it was moved into the middle of the vineyards to make wine in an environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient manner. Since then, it has proudly carried the “ClimateHouse Wine” seal.
