In Meltina at an altitude of 1,200 m stands Arunda, Europe’s highest sparkling wine producing winery. The location is ideal for the ripening and storage of sparkling wines. The natural changes in temperature allow the sparkling wine to ripen slowly and evenly. The Reiterer family produces fruity, elegant sparkling wines from Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes, using only the classical method of bottle fermentation. These sparkling wines ripen in their own yeast for a period of at least 24 months. Cuvées can ripen up to 60 months.
On a guided tour through the sparkling wine cellars Arunda with tasting you can learn a lot regarding the production and storage of sparkling wines. Price per person: 8,00€ Registration at the cellars or the Tourism Association Meltina/Mölten, tel. +39 0471 668 282
