Today the winery has approxi mately 440 members who together farm vineyards covering over 300 hectares.Kellerei Kaltern - Caldaro is thus one of the most important quality producers in Italy. The vineyards are almost entirely worked by hand, while the members set themselves strict guide lines for quality assurance, supervised by the cellar master. He is available throughout the year to assist and advise the wine growers in their work. The wine village of Kaltern lies 15 kilometres south of Bozen, above Lake Kaltern, the warmest lake in the Alps. The variety of soils and differing microclimates in this region are refl ected in the more than 60 vineyards with historical names such as Vial, Spigel or Salt. Gentle hills rising to a height of approximately 600 metres surround the lake like a horseshoe, so that most slopes face south or southeast and are thus best exposed to the sun. The rapes, aided by the pleasantly warm climate around the lake, ripen completely and thus develop their aroma to its full extent. In the evening, breezes from the summits of the 2,000 metre high Mendel range fl ow down over the slopes to cool the vines after the long, hot summer days and help develop fruit aromas and acidity in the grapes. Wine-growing around Lake Kaltern is structured on an extremely small scale. Most of the more than 1,000 wine growers in this area possess less than one hectare. For these small wine growers it is practically impossible to make wine from their own grapes and then to market it. The creation of producer co-operatives was an economic necessity, simulta neously offering farmers access to the knowledge of experienced cellar masters and the use of the technical infrastructures necessary for the production of high-quality wines. Even back in 1906, the year of its creation, the need to produce wines of excellent quality was central to the philosophy of the winery now known as Kellerei Kaltern - Caldaro.
