Castel Sallegg | South Tyrol

Castel Sallegg | South Tyrol

Land and property around Castel Sallegg, show the traces of a distant and eventful past. Conscious of tradition and responsibility, the von Kuenburg family continues winegrowing today. The cellars in the castle bear witness to the fact that castle life and viticulture have always been connected. The hills around Lake Kaltern are ideal conditions for viticulture. Geological, geographical and climatic elements, together with the vines used there, form the basis for wine production of the highest quality. Georg Graf von Kuenburg can call many good sites in and around Kaltern his own. The fine fruity white wines are just as much in demand as the substantial reds. The legendary rose muscatel from Schloss Sallegg contributed to further fame. - Gerardo

"Sallegg Castle is located above Kaltern and is one of the most magnificent residences in the Überetscher Land. Lavishly and meticulously restored, it is an eloquent witness of feudal times with its stately staircase, the magnificent halls and the extensive park that surrounds the castle. In the middle of the 19th century, Sallegg Castle fell to Prince Heinrich von Campofranco, who resided in Sicily. When moving to South Tyrol, the princess took a bunch of Moscato Rosa vines with her and planted them in Sallegg Castle in 1850. They yielded a wine that the Counts of Kuenburg, who took over the estate from Heinrich, could claim exclusively for themselves until the recent past, and which made all of Sallegg Castle shine brightly." - Dr. Jens Priewe (Die Weine von Südtirol)

´Pratum´ Terlaner Weißburgunder DOC 2013, Castel Sallegg, Südtirol
Pratum Terlaner Weißburgunder DOC 2013

Castel Sallegg, South Tyrol

The grapes for the Terlan Pinot Blanc 'Pratum' come from the oldest vines of the Prey site, whose name derives from the Latin pratum. They thrive there at 550 meters above sea level on porphyry gravel and Grödner sandstone. Two thirds are aged for 9 months in stainless steel barrels while the remaining third is aged for the same time in French tonneaux barrels. The color of the wine is a pale straw yellow with greenish reflections. On the nose there are aromas of peach, exotic fruits and vanilla. On the palate, this Pinot Blanc presents minerality with balanced acidity and a long finish. - Gerardo

"Sparkling straw yellow with light gray nuances. Clearly marked nose with nicely ripened fruit, of fresh crisp apple, nectarines and walnuts. Blooms nicely on the palate, polished, lots of clear fruit, saline, builds nicely, slightly ripe notes on the finish." - Falstaff

"There is a lot of great Pinot Bianco coming out of Alto Adige these days. The 2013 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Pratum is one of those great finds from Northern Italy. This is a steady and true wine that offers variety-specific tones of pear, Golden Delicious apple, pine nut and honey. The intensity is not obvious, but it creeps up on you slowly as the bouquet evolves in the glass. In the mouth, Pratum is well textured, bright and crisp." - Robert Parker

Castel Sallegg | South Tyrol | gerardo.de

For many, Kaltern is the epitome of South Tyrolean wine par excellence. Kaltern owes this reputation not only to its famous lake, but to its advantageous winegrowing conditions in general. The hilly landscape with its southern character harbors dreamlike vineyards with the best slopes and with impressive views of the lake. The mineral-rich soils consist mainly of sand, clay and marl - a mixture that is able to impart a very special character to the wine.

For commercial reasons, the area of the Kalterer See was unfortunately very broadly defined, we limit ourselves to the core zone, which may carry the addition 'Auslese Klassisch'. The classic sites are all within sight of the lake, including the 'Bischofsleiten' site of Castell Sallegg, in St. Josef am See. Kalterersee is made from the indigenous Vernatsch grape variety, which occupies a prominent position in South Tyrol for the production of red wine. The red wines made from this grape are bright raspberry red, with subtle raspberry fruit and fine herbal spice. In the final, the wine promises a delicate almond flavor and shows a subtle acidity with mild tannins. Today, the wine from Lake Kaltern no longer obscures the view of a number of other quite outstanding red wines such as the ruby red Pinot Nero, dark Cabernet, the garnet red Merlot or the purple Lagrein, all from the St. Josef am See site.

The winery is owned by the Counts of Kuenburg, following the direct succession of the Prince of Campofranco. Almost unnoticed, South Tyrol's wines have developed into the best south of the Alps, due to diligence, ambition and a mentality that one likes to find at cultural seams. This tension can be felt within the venerable old walls of the historic Castel Sallegg in Kaltern; a fresh wind is blowing in South Tyrol. Responsible for this is the young oenologist Matthias Hauser, who has generously introduced changes and above all focused on quality development. Expressive red wines, fresh, fruity white wines produced in a modern style by temperature control are the result. The basis is provided by about 30 hectares of the best sites on Lake Caldaro with vines, some of which are up to 50 years old, which thrive perfectly on gravel, reddish ground Gröden sandstone and partly warm, air-permeable soils thanks to a special microclimate. Careful tending in the vineyard, consistent environmentally friendly cultivation and gentle vinification exclusively from own sites and castle bottlings support the quality efforts of the house. In oak barrels, the precious wines mature in the historic, imposing cellar of the castle, three floors below ground, in ideal and constant conditions throughout the year. - Gerardo

"Sallegg Castle is a magnificent estate in the midst of the vineyards of Caldaro, which was once acquired by Archduke Rainer of Austria and came into the possession of the Counts Kuenburg through inheritance. Today, Georg Count Kuenburg manages the stately estate. Since the 1990s, much has been invested in viticulture. The cellar was re-equipped and the vineyards were accurately planted in Guyot training. The wines of Sallegg grow in the best locations around Lake Kaltern and on the gently rising hills around the village of Kaltern. The special interplay of landscape and soil composition, of Mediterranean and Alpine climate, gives the wines unmistakable character. Georg Graf Kuenburg is careful to ensure that his wines are sold ready to drink. He therefore always ages his red wines a little longer. 'Only in this way,' he says, 'do the wines offer maximum enjoyment as noble companions at table.' A few years ago, the labels of Sallegg's wines were redesigned. They now appear more contemporary and give the wines a nobler appearance. Nevertheless, tradition still plays an important role in the new labels. An old label from the 1960s served as the basis for the redesign." - Falstaff

"With each passing year, Castel Sallegg, a property of the Counts of Kuenburg in Kaltern, climbs another rung on the quality ladder. In addition, the new, young cellar master Matthias Hauser knows his business and is driving the Sallegg project forward with clear ideas." - Gambero Rosso
