Three generations of vintners –
With a passion for wine-making

We are down to earth, but also innovative. We have great respect for Nature, and cultivate grapes only at the appropriate locations. That describes, in a nutshell, the philosophy of the Niklas winery. We view our family heritage as a responsibility to shape and maintain a South Tyrolean wine-growing estate like no other. It embodies the know-how and motivation of three generations of vintners, and is a place where outstanding South Tyrolean red wines typical for their location are created. In the meantime, Dieter Sölva guides the estate’s continued development. Dieter learned the business from his father, Josef, the founder of the Niklas winery, whom he succeeded. Dieter’s son Michael is already adding his unique handwriting to the family business – whose wines are now being marketed throughout the world.

We can't hide our love of wine.

It’s a case of vocation and occupation. At the Niklas winery, nothing is left to chance. There’s plenty of work to do on the 17 acres of vineyard scattered amongst the premium locations of the wine-growing town of Kaltern.

Our special focus is on the Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon, and Kalterersee. And not to forget our favorite wine: Kerner.
