The winery rises above the spa town of Merano on the hill of a medial moraine. The vineyards around Rametz Castle are in an exceptionally favorable position: the vines take root at nearly 400 meters above sea level and are ventilated by mild southerly winds in the afternoon and cool mountain winds in the evening. Due to the geographically oriented slopes, the vineyards are pampered by the warm sun until the evening hours.
