South Tyrolean Wine Museum

In Caldaro, along the famous South Tyrolean Wine Road, you can visit the first Wine Museum on the southern side of the Alps

The South Tyrolean Wine Museum - "Südtiroler Weinmuseum" in German, "Museo provinciale del vino" - has already been founded in 1955. In those days it was lodged at Castel Ringberg above Lake Caldaro - only in 1986 it was relocated to Caldaro village. The permanent exhibition illustrates the history of viticulture in South Tyrol by a large number of exhibits. The focus is set on the work in the vineyard, the production and storage of South Tyrolean wine. Glass and ceramic artefacts, wine and religion as well as original farmers' implements such as wine barrels are part it.

Also the profession of the "Saltner", guardian of the vines from the early modern period to 1914, is analysed. Outside, however, there is a Wine Trail, offering a great view on the Monte di Mezzo, Castelchiaro Castle and Lake Caldaro, and providing information on new practices in wine-growing. Remarkable are above all the ancient trestles, which are no longer used in modern vinegrowing. Also the types of vines that can be admired in the wine garden are no longer cultivated today.

The Wine Museum is one of the Provincial Museums of South Tyrol, an entity that also comprises other museums such as the Fortezza Fortress or the South Tyrolean Folklore Museum. And how to reach it? It is hosted by the former tithe cellar of a Counts of Tyrol estate in the Via dell'Oro alley in the centre of Caldaro. The museum has no parking possibilities, but the parking spaces Trutsch P3 and Piazza Rottenburg P5 are located close by (both subject to charge). Further information about wine provides the Caldaro Wine Trail, a hike through the alleys and the vineyards to Lake Caldaro.
