Castelfeder WineryThe Castelfeder Winery was founded in 2020 by Alfons Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all’Adige.The small private winery originally lay in the center of Neumarkt/Egna in the south of Alto Adige and processed mainly red grapes of the Lagrein, Pinot Noir and Schiava varieties.In 1989 the founder’s son, Günther Giovanett, took over the management of the winery and at the same time, relocated the operations to the small village of Kurtinig/Cortina in the very south of Alto Adige.The purchase of new vineyards and close collaboration with other winegrowers in the area offer Günther new possibilities of producing great wines through careful selection of the best production areas and focused cultivation of choice varietals; a job he performs with enthusiasm.The effort of Günther and his wife Alessandra is confirmed by the decision of their two children Ivan and Ines, who both changed their passion into work.A true family business with the goal of producing outstanding wines in a special region of Italy.

Straw yellow in color. Tipical fruity and aromatic Traminer scent with a fragrance of intense spicy, floreal and smoked notes. The palate texture is rich and full with a harmonious after-tast. This powerful wine is paticulary enjoyable as an aperitive or with lobster, langoustine and grilled fish. It is also excellent to enjoy on its own on special occasions.
Powerful ruby red colour. Fine characteristic Pinot bouquet with a clearly fruity character and a trace of spicey and smokey aromas. This wine is powerful and expressive on the palate with a pleasant tannic background. A noble wine for moderately complicated dishes.
