We have been so fortunate to have connected with the Giovanett family. Ivan and Ines are currently at the forefront of this family winery. Brother and sister team, Ivan is the winemaker and Ines the marketing and director of sales. They are lively, fun and 100% invested in the culture of wine and community.
A little history: Weingut Castelfeder, located near the village of Cortona in Alto Adige (Südtirol) in northernmost Italy, was founded in 1970 by A. Giovanett. He attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all’Adige and at the founding already had extensive experience as a vintner. In 1989 the founder’s son, Günther Giovanett (born in 1958 and father of Ines & Ivan), took over the management of the winery. Continuing in the same tradition as his father, Günther still has close contact with winegrowers, careful selection of the best production areas and well-aimed cultivation of choice varietals.
Involved in every aspect of the winery: this passion for winemaking begins in the vineyard with the planting of the vines, advising and working with the winegrowers and continues through the harvest and gentle pressing of the grapes in the cellar up to the vinification of the wines and finally to their marketing. The result of this difficult but rewarding job is wine to be proud of.
