For more than 150 years, the vineyards around Moos-Schulthaus Castle have provided excellent conditions for the cultivation of Weissburgunder in South Tyrol. In the mild microclimate of cool nights, in which the grapes ripen, vines grow up to 40 years old. The museum 'ethnic studies' has taken place in the prominent castle Moos Sultans, which together with De Kathrinen Kapel reflects the architecture of the historic buildings.
The vineyards are located between 540 and 620m high at Schulthaus, above Moos Castle, in Appiano facing south-east. The terroir consists of limestone gravel and clay. Manual harvesting of the Weissburgunder takes place at the end of September. Most (85%) is fermented in stainless steel tanks and the rest in oak barrels, followed by malolactic fermentation. The two wines are combined in February.
