After the midday visit at the museum our day at Rovereto continued with a visit to the Balter winery. Winery is located in an old castle dating back to the 16th century. The former castle has been serving as Balter family winery since 1872 for four generations. All the grapes of the Balter wines and spumantes are also grown in the surrounding 10 hectares. Balter is relatively small but quality winery, producing a bit more than 70 000 bottles a year, main product being Trento DOC spumante.,+TN,+Italia&daddr=Via+Vallunga+II,+24,+Rovereto,+TN,+Italia&hl=fi&ll=45.95115,11.093445&spn=0.634943,1.586151&sll=45.989329,11.201935&sspn=0.634506,1.586151&geocode=FaWmvAIdyBmmACmvNcRcVhGCRzGRnQM9NdrWvA%3BFaZZvAIdLqaoACk1oC0MrA6CRzFJlD2-cW_kvA&oq=Via+Vallunga+II,+24&dirflg=w&mra=ls&t=m&z=10
We were lucky with our our visit because we didn't organized the exhibition upfront.  Actually we just found the winery from the recommended Trento wineries and walked in to see if they can give us a tour. We got an excellent welcoming, staff welcomed us friendly and gave us an a great overview of their winery and wines. And of course they let us see the whole process and the undergound winery facilities. Balter winery facilities were underground so that the original castle and surroundings would stay intact.

And as usual they let us taste and experience their high quality Trento DOC Spumante and other wines. We are more than grateful for the Balter winery for letting us visit without a notice. A definitely place to visit if you appreciate professional wine makers and artisan skills. And the the Balter's spumante is definitely excellent quality as the Trento DOC spumantes are. Recommended!
