The Castelfeder Wine Estate, owned and operated by the Giovanett family, is a mid sized 4th generation family winery estate located in the historic town of Cortina, which is steeped in ancient wine making traditions but very modern at the same time.
This village is located at the core of Lower Alto Adige production area in Northern Italy near the Austrian/Swiss border, an area that we believe makes the best Pinot Grigio in the world. Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio comes 100% from the Casltlefeder Estate Vineyards….about 120 acres located on the Alto Adige/Trentino border.

Our grapes are hand-harvested in cool morning hours and fermented in cool stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and purity. The cool fruit also give winemakers total control.
The Castelfeder Winery was founded in 1970 by Alfons Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all’Adige.
