Holidays at the vineyard – traditional, modern, and a just little bit luxurious
Why not spend your vacation at the place where South Tyrol’s greatest vintages are grown, harvested, pressed, and vatted? Holidays “down at the vineyard” – in Kaltern / Caldaro on the Lake, a vacation resort which looks back on a long tradition and where Tyrolean lifestyle and culture still live today. Our vineyard in Kaltern / Caldaro, in the village of St. Nikolaus, has 4 vacation apartments – all comfortably furnished and offering the ideal conditions for a carefree vacation in South Tyrol.
Centuries of wine culture have put their stamp upon our village. This is a popular destination for vacationers who want to experience something different. Mountainbikers will appreciate the fact that it is the ideal starting-point for extensive tours of the Dolomites, outings to Bozen / Bolzano, Meran / Merano, Trient / Trento, and to Lake Garda. Everything is near at hand. There are medieval fortresses, Lake Kaltern / Lago di Caldaro, and the Mendel Cableway which can all be comfortably reached by bicycle. Your hosts, Dieter and Evelin, and their sons Michael, Maximilian, and Niklas Sölva are looking forward to welcoming you here in Kaltern / Caldaro.
Vintners for 3 generations – With a passion for wine-making
In our winery, we firmly believe in the need for the respectful husbandry of natural resources. We appreciate the unique characteristics of this wine-growing locale and the influence it has upon our wines. But our innovative spirit also makes a contribution, as does the immense knowledge and experience that comes from three generations of wine-making tradition. These are the foundations for the special character of our wines.
In our wine cellar – which we built, ourselves – you’ll find typical South Tyrolean whites and reds which have won countless awards and which we export to Germany, Switzerland, other parts of Italy, the rest of Europe, and America. We would be pleased to take you on a guided tour of our wine cellar, and then invite you to participate in a wine-tasting. You can even purchase our wines in our own shop. Please ask us about it!

Vacationing at a winery is something special. You feel the changing of the seasons more deeply, and can observe the day-to-day work in the vineyard. The profound connection of South Tyrolean vintners to Nature is nowhere more evident. You can learn basic facts about wine – directly from the wine-makers themselves.
You’re sure to be pleasantly surprised by many of the things you might learn about South Tyrolean wines, the wine-growing regions of South Tyrol, and in particular the areas of Upper Etsch/Adige Valley und Kaltern / Caldaro – in any case, your vacation promises to provide you with fascinating insights into wine culture and into the world of South Tyrolean farmstead vacationing, which combines modern and traditional elements – and sometimes even seems rather luxurious.
