The Wine Museum is located in Merano, in the rooms of Rametz Castle. Owned by the Schmid family, it exhibits materials and objects used in viticulture and the production and processing of grain and cereals. The museum can only be visited with a guide.
The Merano Wine Museum was set up in 1980 in four rooms of Rametz Castle. Over the decades, numerous tools once used for viticulture and the cultivation and processing of grain and cereals, typical of the Vinschgau Valley, have been collected and arranged here: tools for working the land and harvesting, machines for transporting the grapes and for subsequent vinification... Since 2007 the collection has been enriched with pictures and old objects used for the processing and production of speck.
The guided tour of the museum takes about 90 minutes and includes: a walk through the vineyards with an explanation of the processing and the history of the museum; a visit to the historic porphyry stone cellars and the modern wine cellar, tasting of 5 wines and tasting of typical Kaiserspeck.
Rametz Castle is situated on an ancient moraine hill, protected by the Tessa Group and surrounded by a vast expanse of vineyards where famous grapes such as Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Riesling are produced. Inside the castle there is a restaurant, a wine shop and a wine house.
