The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The "Landesweingut Laimburg" is located in the municipality of Pfatten at the foot of the Mitterberg 17 km south of Bolzano in the lowlands not far from Lake Caldaro in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol (Trentino-South Tyrol). The landmark and patron saint of the name is the Laimburg castle ruin of the same name, which dates from the 13th century and is enthroned above it. Director and oenologist is Klaus Platter with Urban Piccolruaz as cellar master. As part of the "Laimburg Agricultural and Forestry Research Center", the Provincial Wine Estate has been committed to South Tyrolean viticulture since 1975 and, according to entrepreneurial criteria, focuses on combining research and practice. Thus, part of the research in the field of "cellar management" is used for viticulture pilot projects and innovative developments. Since the construction of the "Felsenkeller" in 1989/90, the special enterprise of the province of South Tyrol has also fulfilled a representative function. The vineyards of the Provincial Winery comprise 40 hectares of vines in all winegrowing areas of South Tyrol on estates with a wide variety of soils and locations between 200 and 750 m above sea level. The white wine varieties Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Goldmuskateller and Gewürztraminer are cultivated, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Lagrein, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia and Rosenmuskateller

The wines from the grapes of our own vineyards are pressed from the DOC areas of South Tyrol and Lake Caldaro. The fermentation is temperature-controlled and the wines are moved as little as possible. The quality wines are stylistically marketed in two lines; the proceeds are reinvested in research. The classic "estate wines" are wines traditionally matured in stainless steel, sometimes also in large oak barrels, and are typical of the grape variety. The "Burgselektion" stands for the particularly individual site wines, predominantly matured in small or large wooden barrels, with Ladin names from the mythical world of the Dolomites, which are strong in character. In the vinification of the wines, special emphasis is placed on the character of the South Tyrolean grape varieties and their locations

With the latest discovery of 2,400-year-old grape seeds of the Vitis vinifera species in a Rhaetian settlement between the Laimburg castle ruins and the state vineyard, the area is one of the oldest wine-growing regions in the German-speaking world. The ancient Roman road "Via-Claudia-Augusta" once passed here, which led from the plains of the Po and the Adriatic Sea to the Danube. Since the 1970s, the "Laimburg" together with its botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle have been trying to do justice to this heritage. This is reflected in the care of the vine of the autochthonous variety Versoaln, which grows near Katzenzungen Castle in the municipality of Tisens/Prissian. With a 350 m² leaf canopy, it is the largest vine in the world and, with an age-related 350 years, one of the oldest. In 2006, the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle took over the sponsorship of this project and created a walk-in treasure chamber with antique grape seeds as a tribute to 3000 years of South Tyrolean wine culture. The Provincial Winery is also the ideator and member of the Association of South Tyrolean Quality Wine Estates "Tirolensis Ars Vini" (Viticultori Sudtirolesi).

The foundation of the "Laimburg Technical College for Fruit, Viticulture and Horticulture" in 1961, the "Experimental Cellar of the Province of South Tyrol" (later Provincial Winery) created in 1968 and the "Laimburg Agricultural and Forestry Experimental Centre" in 1975 laid the foundation for a forward-looking structure in the development of quality in South Tyrolean agriculture: Today, the "Laimburg" stands for an interplay of experimental and research centre, production plant, school training centre and advice centre, and is at the same time a guarantee for modern mountain agriculture that produces ecologically and economically with sustainability.
