Wines and mountains have a lot in common. They provide us with intense moments, they challenge and fulfil us. Making a good wine is like climbing a summit. It requires hard work, determination, expertise and routine. ERSTE+NEUE has been exploring new avenues for more than a century, combining Alto Adige wine culture and tradition with innovation. Throughout this journey, we have dared quite a few first ascents and in doing so have written Alto Adige wine history. Created in 1986 as a result of the merger of Erste Kellerei (1900) and Neue Kellerei (1925) followed in 2016 by the future-oriented alliance with Cantina Kaltern. Today ERSTE+NEUE stands for top alpine wines, pressed in harmony with nature using not only the latest technology but also drawing on the experience and love of experimentation demonstated by previous generations.
