Elena Walch is a leading Alto Adige wine estate, in family hands, and belongs to the elite in Italian wine production, with international success. Encouraging quality and innovation, Elena Walch stood at the head of the Alto Adige quality revolution and has gained local and international esteem for her efforts. An architect by trade, Elena Walch married into one of the oldest and most significant wine families of the region and brought new, modern concepts to the traditional establishment. Now, the responsibility for the family business is being put into the hands of the daughters, Julia and Karoline Walch, already the fifth generation.
The philosophy of the estate is dedicated to its terroir- the idea that wines must be the individual expression of their soil, climate and cultivation in the vineyard- and that this must be maintained according to principles of sustainability and passed on to the next generation. The firm belief that the quality of wine is created in the vineyard requires uncompromising work, taking into account the individuality of each vineyard.
With 60 hectares in cultivation, including the two top vineyards VIGNA Castel Ringberg in Caldaro und VIGNA Kastelaz in Tramin, Elena Walch belongs to the most important protagonists of Alto Adige winemaking.
The wines show character, elegance and great personality, reflecting the most professional winemaking. The superb climatic conditions and the excellent location of the vineyards produce fresh and fruity white wines as well as concentrated and velvety red wines.

TASTING NOTES:
This Gewurztraminer "Kastelaz" is a ripe, lush golden yellow color. Its bouquet is intensive, captivating and very complex with aromas of roses and litchis as well as dried fruits, with spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves and a touch of honey in the background. The wine is just as convincing and complex in the mouth: round and full, compact and creamy with harmonious freshness and structure as well as an aromatic finish. A wine with finesse and character.
