Wine Museum Rametz

In the spa town of Merano, the private Wine Museum at Rametz Castle tells all about viticulture

The terrain on which Rametz Castle in Maia Alta near Merano stands is ideal for the planted vines: The best grape juice is produced here every autumn, the typical vine arbour cultivation method (Pergel) is used for the grapes. In order to be able to tell everything about the decades-old tradition of winegrowing, the ground floor and cellar rooms of Rametz Castle were converted into a small private museum a few decades ago, the Weinbaumuseum Rametz or Museo del Vino di Rametz.

Equipment and tools for soil cultivation, grape harvest and transport are exhibited and presented in four rooms, including tools that have been forgotten for a long time. Grain cultivation and pest control are also a topic. A few years ago, the museum was extended: Now you can also learn about the making of South Tyrolean Speck from pictures and tools. The tour starts with a walk through the vineyards with information about the work in the vineyard and the history of the castle.

After a visit to the museum, the tour continues into the cellar, which dates back to the 18th century with its porphyry stone ashlars, and ends in the modern winery. Here you can taste the fine South Tyrolean wine together with Kaiserspeck. And how can you reach the Wine Museum Rametz? Rametz Castle is located in Via Labers 4 in Maia Alta (Obermais), parking spaces are available. The municipal bus line no. 3 connects the centre of Merano with Maia Alta in a few minutes.
