Weingut Castelfeder -- Alto Adige

From the photo, you might think this wine region is in southern Germany or maybe Austria, but it's actually northern-most Italy in the area formerly known as Südtirol (a part of Austria until WWI), now known as Alto Adige. Bi-lingual and bi-cultural, it's Italy with a strong Austrian influence. On her first visit to Seattle, Ines Giovanett (daughter of Günther Giovanett, owner of the Castelfeder Winery) laughingly said: "I wear a dirndl! I eat knödel!" More on Ines & her family's winery>
