History, wine and earth an inseparable union
Castel Sallegg is a family-run firm of winegrowers in Caldaro, Alto Adige. Making our own wines mean that we are fully dedicated to Alto Adige’s winegrowing culture and we feel it is our task to bring Alto Adigeean wines to a wider audience of wine-lovers in both Italy and the world.
