TAGGENBRUNN WINERY
A RETREAT FOR THE SENSES

 

– a place shaped by wine, culture and history –

 

Traditionally not a wine-making region, Carinthia nevertheless produces excellent wines on an area of 45 hectares in the beautiful Alpe-Adria countryside following traditional methods that require a strong work ethic. Vine pruning, foliage work and grape harvest are done by hand to ensure the highest wine quality.

Our wine processing plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that emphasises ecological aspects and sustainability. A careful winemaking process and short transportation routes of grapes from the vineyard to the winery contribute to the highest quality standards. Responsible for the superb wine is Hubert Vittori, a successful and passionate winegrower and cellar master with Italian roots. Vittori expresses his enthusiasm about the Taggenbrunn Winery: “We have an optimal south-facing location with lots of sun. The vines grow in mineral slate soil offering perfect conditions for best quality.”  

At the Taggenbrunn Winery work is done hand in hand with nature, from vine pruning to foliage work and harvest. The results are tasty grapes of the highest quality. Additionally, a wide variety of plants such as wild rose bushes provide a sustainable and broad habitat to insects, bees and birds. The south-facing terraced vineyards situated around the castle are a special highlight. Here, vines soak up the sun and root deep inside the mineral slate soils, giving the wines a unique character.

At the Taggenbrunn Winery, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc (Weißburgunder), Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder), Traminer, Muskateller, Veltliner and Riesling grow on the best sites. The red grape varieties are Zweigelt, Pinot Noir (Blauburgunder) and Syrah.

TAGGENBRUNN GRANARY

The late-Gothic granary is of considerable historical value. Built by Leonhard von Keutschach, it has preserved its original form to this day. According to dendrochronological findings (annual rings of wood), the granary was built around 1510/1512, at the same time that Michelangelo was completing the vaulted frescoes of the Sistine Chapel.

In 2016, the granary, which was built with rubble masonry, was turned into a wine cellar with function rooms by the Trecolore Architects. Its appearance remains largely unaltered, only the steep, unsupported hipped slate roof was renewed. Well-preserved shingles were reused, but most were replaced with new ones. The narrow slit windows with ironwork detail had already been renewed during a previous restoration, while larch wood panels were used for the window sills as part of the latest transformation.Getreidespeicher 08 2018The late-Gothic gate with the original iron door has also been kept unchanged. A glazed vestibule was built on the inside to provide thermal separation. An arched opening facing the vineyard was converted into entrance portal that can also be used as an emergency exit.

THE GODDESS OF TIME

Andre Heller Suzy Stoeckl

The Goddess of Time by universal artist André Heller seems to keep watch over the entire estate. She represents a powerful nature spirit who is entrusted with the protection of Castle Taggenbrunn, the vineyards and all visitors. The elaborate 12-metre-high sculpture was designed by versatile artist André Heller.

The artwork consists of plants, rock crystal, metal, light and water. The sculpture is a magical reminder of our responsibility for planet Earth and nature in particular, inspiring in the viewer a sense of wonder and contemplation.
