Balter- Unique Winery that has been constructed completely Underground
The Balter wine estate is situated on land surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards and enclosed by an original stone wall. In the middle of the winery estate is a castle featuring a tower from the 16th century. The Balter family has owned the estate since 1872 and the unique winery has been constructed completely under ground in order to not take away from any of the lands natural beauty.
Visit the Magical Place
Balter winery is perfectly located five minutes from the centre of Rovereto in Trentino, which is considered by many to be a magical place where the locals live their lives with passion and love for their homes and their country. The grapes grown on the farm are looked after with love and care by the family members who own the estate and all of this is done where the estate is located on a beautiful hill overlooking the city below.
Perfect Growing Conditions for the Grapes
The situation of the estate on the hill means that it is 350m above sea level where the climate provides for long and sunny days. This provides the perfect growing and ripening conditions for the grapes used in the wine making process. In 1990 the family invested in building the underground cellar to protect the landscape and equip the wine makers with top of the range and state of the art equipment.
Throughout the history of the farm the focus has been on red wine but more recently the wine makers have branched out into making a wider range of wines.
