South Tyrolean Wine Museum

Right in the centre of Caldaro there is the interesting Wine Museum, one of the 10 Provincial Museums of South Tyrol.

In the most famous wine-growing area of the region, the Bassa Atesina area with the stunning Lake Caldaro, the South Tyrolean Wine Museum - "Südtiroler Weinmuseum" in German, "Museo Provinciale del Vino" in Italian - takes you on a journey back in time, providing information on the history and significance of wine and on the work of the winegrowers. Since 1986, it has been housed in the former tithe cellar of the estate of the Counts of Tyrol, a historical building in the centre of Caldaro. But the museum was already founded in 1955 - at that time located in the premises of Castel Ringberg - making it the first Wine Museum on the southern side of the Alps.

The main focus is set on objects of daily use of winegrowers, their tools, casks and barrels. Among the exhibits there's also an old wooden grape press called "Baumtorggl". Furthermore there are utensils of daily life, glass and ceramic, as well as religious objects. Another section is dedicated to the profession of the "Saltner", guardian of the vines from the early modern period to 1914.

The outdoor area of the South Tyrolean Wine Museum completes the offer: along the theme path, which offers a magnificent view on Lake Caldaro, you can see various practices of wine-growing, as well as old and rare grape varieties. And how to reach the museum? It can be found in the Via d'Oro alley, in the centre of Caldaro village (Kaltern Dorf). Unfortunately there are no parking spaces available, but the public bus stops along this road. Two public parking spaces, however, both subject to charge, are located close by: Trutsch P3 and Piazza Rottenburg P5.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
