The perfect trip to discover South Tyrol vineyards from above.
From the top of the little church of Castelvecchio you will discover the heart of South Tyrol wine region: Lake Caldaro and its precious vineyards.
You will start your amazing trip from here, discovering the different terroirs that characterize South Tyrolean wines and the sparkling wines made following the Traditional Method. The high altitudes generously offered by the South Tyrolean landscape, the cold northern winds, the warm currents of the Mediterranean Seaand the strong temperature range all together create the perfect environment for Kettmeir sparkling wines. Naturally elegant, instinctively refined, Kettmeir Traditional Method sparkling wine releases intense flavors and delicious freshness from the very first taste.
Kettmeir is a historical South Tyrolean winery founded in 1919. It has always been a great symbol of South Tyrolean wine-making traditions. Also, thanks to the particularly favorable climatic conditions of this land, Kettmeir is a cutting-edge winery, capable of enhancing the local vineyards located both in the valley and in the mountains, producing elegant and aromatic wines.
You will visit the village of Castelvecchio (panoramic viewpoint), toast with a glass of Athesis Brut Rosè, and learn about the history of winemaking in South Tyrol and the different characteristics of the most diverse terroirs.
Back to the winery, after a historical narration under the traditional vaults, you will visit the production area, the élevage and remuage cellars for the traditional method sparkling wines, and the underground barrique cellar. To round it off, you will taste four emblematic Kettmeir wines.
