Welcome to my wines’ world

I was happy to become part of the family owning one of the most prestigious farms in the region, right at the moment when Alto Adige started being acknowledged as one of the most prestigious wine producing areas in Italty and in the world. I seized upon the chance to run directly the two family estates, located on the border between the two most famous small towns devoted to wine of our region, Castel Ringberg, overlooking Lake Caldaro, and Kastelaz, a steep hill, perfectly exposed southward, in the heart of Tramin, reference point of an area rich in vineyards with high intensity per hectare.

Welcome to my wines’ world


The challenge of changing job, from architect to wine-producer, initially scared me a lot. Fortunately, however, my wines increasingly obtained high scores and important rewards from the specialized media and, among these, particularly important, the “three glasses” received from the most renown Italian guidebook, Vini d’Italia, edited by Gamber Rosso, for three years in succession.


Castel Ringberg


Castel Ringberg is Elena Walch’s most important vineyard. Set opposite Lake Caldaro, in the heart of the wines area of Alto Adige and at about 300m above the sea level, it enjoys a particularty mild climate. The poor territoir is a real benefit for the grapes’ quality. The same castle was built in 1620 by the Austrian monarchs, the Hapsburgs, in Italian Renaissance-style, like a hunting castle, in fashion at those times as noble residence. Nowadays it is the seat of an important restaurant. From the Castel Ringberg vineyard, besides the different Crù wines, also three Riservas are derived: the barriques–refined Chardonnay, of a marked international style, besides the Lagrein, the native vine of Alto Adige, and the Cabernet Sauvignon. All three wines stay for long in small wooden vats. These three Riserva boast of a long list of national and international rewards.


Modern technology under ancient vaults


In the heart of the small town of Tramin, Alto Adige, Elena Walch’s wines age. In the shade of the great wine-producing traditions, groundbreaking cellar techinques go with the vinification process. The visitor is surprised by the image of fascinating, huge inlaid Slavonian oak barrels, alternated with the classic French barriques, contrast and history that make this cellar one of the most beautiful of the region. The vinification takes into account the most modern techniques, firmly believing in limiting at most the oenological interventions.
