Mt. Magdalener Schallerhof

To enter into the world of Castelfeder is to soar across an unspoken threshold into the lush valleys of the high Adige River. Driving from Lake Garda, from Veneto, through Trentino, you discover yourself, without warning, in what feels, sounds, and tastes like German wine country. Gunther Giovanett took over the family business in 1989 after his father retired from the daily operations of the winery he founded in 1969. Located in the center of Neumarkt, in the South Tyrol region of Italy, the Giovanett family produces a range of unique wines. Now into their third generation, Gunther and his son Ivan are gaining a better understanding of the special micro-climates that exist in the Alto-Adige and South Tyrol regions.

Tasting Notes

"Ruby to garnet red color, floral scent of violets and a delicate almond tone. In the mouth, this dry wine is full-bodied and slightly spicy."


"Schallerhof" originates from a 3 hectare area in the wine village of St. Magdalena above Bolzano, which gives its name to this wine. On the sunny southern slopes in the north of the South Tyrolean capital, this St. Magdalener grows on sandy, loosely weathered soil. In the middle of our vineyard is a tower built in Tibetan style by the owner, which makes the vineyard so unique. Hand picked, destemming.


Maceration with peel for 10-14 days in stainless steel.
