Schloss Plars Winery

Andreas Theiner's first glance when he enters his fermentation cellar is at his candles. And for good reason: While this is the perfect temperature for fermenting his white wines, the air around the steel tanks of his red wines would be too cool.
"This trick was taught to me by an old hand," he says with a smile and lights another candle, which also immediately goes under the tank.
In 2004, the former banker Andreas Theiner started making wine here in Plars, just above Lagundo, and over the years has brought the business back from fruit-growing to viticulture. The "again" comes from the fact that his grandfather already cultivated and developed wines here.
The witnesses of this former activity are still all hidden in the ancient, deep cellars of the castle. These can be reached via a steep staircase, which is flanked by two huge cypress trees that are over a hundred years old.

A real smorgasbord of equipment from many decades of viticulture can be admired here, old wine bottles, as well as relics from the time of the fascist takeover of South Tyrol by Italy are spread over several rooms.
Here is also the barrique cellar, where the holy of holies, wines like the fruity Sauvignon Marzan with its light pompelmo note and the dark, purple Lagein- Merlot Yhrn are aged and stored.


The Schloss Plars Winery is sublimely situated in the best location below the Lagundo Waal path, directly on the gentle vineyards, which form the transition to the steep walls of the Texel mountains. The castle is a small 4**** hotel with modern suites and probably one of the most beautiful swimming pools with a view in the entire Merano region. All wines can be tasted and purchased in the house, and on Tuesdays a wine tour with subsequent cellar tour and tasting is offered after advance reservation.
