The winery is located in the municipality of Kaltern in the Überetsch (province of Bolzano) in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol ( Trentino-South Ty rol region). The historic buildings of the winery date back to 1608 and were built by Hieronymus Manincor, to whom Emperor Matthias (1557-1619) had given the land around Lake Kaltern for his services to Austria and at the same time raised him to the rank of nobleman. The family coat of arms "Man-in-cor", loosely translated means "hand on heart". In 1978, the estate passed into the possession of the Counts Enzenberg and has been owned by Michael Count Goëss-Enzenberg since 1991. At that time, the farm was a sought-after grape producer for the cooperatives in Kaltern and Terlan. After renovation of the vineyards and introduction of near-natural cultivation, production began in 1996 in the winery's own cellar facilities. In 2004 a newly built cellar was opened, which is considered an international example of contemporary cellar architecture. Helmuth Zozin is the director and oenologist in charge. The total estate comprises 300 hectares of fruit, vine, forest and meadows.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
