The imposing location above the wine village of Tramin is one of the rarest, exclusive Southern exposures in Alto Adige – since most of the vineyards in the region follow the valley, facing East or West. The vineyard terraces at around 360m above sea level are planted with Gewürztraminer and Merlot. Here, close rows of medium planting density and extremely low yield produce the finest wines. In concert, the light chalky soils together with the special climatic and microclimatic conditions of the warm Southern exposure bring forth terroir wines which continually deserve the predicate of “uniqueness”. Vigna Kastelaz is a post-glacial alluvial cone which has formed below the summit of the dolomite Mendola ridge. Resting on the reddish sediment of the Werfener strata, the vineyard is a layered aggregation of various soils and rock carried along by the rivers coming from the mountain: Vigna Kastelaz largely consists of scree which has been deposited over centuries and which is pervaded by raw rock such as granite and porphyry as well as by several humus layers.
