  • Is considered the largest and one of the oldest vines in the world. You can admire the ancient castle of Castel Katzenzungen Prissiano Tesimo fraction, location, halfway between Bolzano and Merano. This screw is protected as a natural monument and cultural heritage. Recent research has established that the vine has more than 350 years. It grows lush-as mentioned-600 meters above sea level, at Castel Katzenzungen sheltered by an old wall, on a ground plate with their and its branches stretch for over 350 square meters. The Vineyard produces small bunches with large and medium-sized transparent beans from which you get a great white wine, Elisabeth Keller, fruity with hints of green, from the delicate structure and with a pronounced acidity. The wine is produced from the basement of the experimental centre Laimburg, the most important agrarian Research Institute in South Tyrol. The production is of a few hundred bottles per year that you can buy numbered and accompanied by a certificate of identity directly in the Castle at a cost of 20 euros. There are various speculations about the origins of the name "Elisabeth Keller», the old vine that comes from the Vinschgau Valley. The most accredited version points to the location of the vineyards, usually located in places difficult to cultivate, which forced farmers to transport the grapes harvested in baskets retained by ropes. The dialect word "Elisabeth Keller", in fact, derives from the German verseilen "(tie). Visitors can also access the old vineyard, in addition to the exhibition of ancient seeds of South Tyrol, dating back 2,400 years ago, while in Tabernaculum you can admire the Golden copy of an amazing grape seed oil by 7 thousand years. The grape seed oil, from Georgia, land of ancient and illustrious tradition of winemaking, was donated by the National Museum in Tbilisi. (GIUSEPPE CASAGRANDE)

  • Dream location. Castle in the countryside and in the vineyards of Prissiano. Very nice and intimate outdoor garden with impeccable service. Buffet very rich and refined. The Castle kept local to the limit of perfection. The most beautiful room is the antiuco affumicatorio ... seems to enter a time portal. Quality food really top notch.

  • Castle Katzenzungen for us it was a love at first sight, the passage on the stone bridge, all rises within to discover, a romantic place to live the dreams and where to celebrate the happiest day of our lives, our wedding 17.09.2016. Thanks to the magic of the Castle, the owner Veronika and her staff impeccable and always attentive to every detail ... There was nothing, everything was perfect from the aperitif in the garden ... to the sublime five-course menu dinner in the Rittersaal restaurant prepared by catering Kirchsteiger ... the lovely wedding cake pastry, Bologna and "gem of the Festival" the evocative room Smokehouse used as a open bar that our guests were greatly appreciated. At first the only thing I did think was that as we have more than 100 invited was not able to put them all in the Rittersaal (70-80 seats) so we decided to put friends in Boznersaal near the table of the bride and groom, seemed to be a problem instead turned out to be a very good idea our friends had a room all to themselves to sing and celebrate with us our love. We thank wholeheartedly Veronika and her staff for making our wedding a fairy tale!
