Wines and mountains have a lot in common. They provide us with intense moments, they challenge and fulfil us. Making a good wine is like climbing a summit. It requires hard work, determination, expertise and routine. ERSTE+NEUE has been exploring new avenues for more than a century, combining Alto Adige wine culture and tradition with innovation. Throughout this journey, we have dared quite a few first ascents and in doing so have written Alto Adige wine history. Created in 1986 as a result of the merger of Erste Kellerei (1900) and Neue Kellerei (1925) followed in 2016 by the future-oriented alliance with Cantina Kaltern. Today ERSTE+NEUE stands for top alpine wines, pressed in harmony with nature using not only the latest technology but also drawing on the experience and love of experimentation demonstated by previous generations. 

ERSTE+NEUE has held the FAIR’N GREEN international seal for sustainable viticulture since 2018. This certification supports us not only in making sustainability goals objectively measurable but also in achieving them. The goals of FAIR’N GREEN are also close to our hearts: environmental protection, natural viticulture, promotion of biodiversity and the protection of natural resources. In addition, fair pay, social commitment and social responsibility are required. At the end of the day, the preservation and promotion of the cultural landscape are also important to us. In this way, those who love our alpine wines can enjoy excellent products that have been produced under responsible conditions for both people and nature.
