The Castelfeder Winery was founded in 1970 by A. Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all'Adige and at the founding already had extensive experience as a vintner. The small private winery originally lay in the center of Egna. In 1989 the founder's son, Günther Giovanett (born in 1958), took over the management of the winery and at the same time, the winery was transferred to the small village of Cortina in the very south of South Tyrol. Today the Castelfeder Winery is located in the middle of South Tyrol's southernmost vineyards, where mostly white varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer are grown. The administrative office however is still located in the historical center of Egna.
