The winery began in 1949, in true artisan style, under the patronage of Vincenzo Savini, and was then developed by Vincenzo’s son, Giuseppe, who led it through both private and cooperative stages. After a number of years spent in a cooperative, Fattoria Giuseppe Savini has now gone back to its origins and is once again offering its traditional products directly to the consumer.

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>
