This is the winning label of the kunst.stück competition, for our Merlot Riserva 2018. The proposal of the artist Anita Ladurner has won the preference of the online public.
The raffle of the three magnum bottles of Merlot Riserva kunst.stück 2018 will take place by July 31 among all those who voted online!
"One single image, immobile within the flow of time. A sigh of yearning melds into the immense breath of nature that infuses all, and the succession of the seasons caresses the vine-clad hills. Pearl-like, the berries enfold a treasure that man’s hand will unveil, only to be once more hidden, flowing into a bottle, there to rest, silent, waiting, until the moment when the curtain rises and it emerges, the star, the soloist, alone on centre stage. Experience will then become memory, imprinted on heart and mind: kunst.stück, artwork."
With the 2014 vintage, Kellerei Kaltern-Caldaro launches a new tradition. Wine has many voices, of course, and one of them conveys the vintage, since each growing year is different, often with specific or exceptional characteristics unique to that individual vintage. The kunst.stück spotlight will focus on precisely these exceptional qualities, with these wines bottled in limited-edition magnums.
Kellerei Kaltern-Caldaro invited artists and graphic artists to design a custom label that will adorn these kunst.stück 2018 wines. A jury has selected 5 finalist labels from among all those submitted, and it is now your privilege, with your vote, to declare the winning kunst.stück label.

For the winning artist, the design and creation of an art label constitutes an opportunity for recognition and prestige, as well as an introduction to an extensive and heterogeneous public. The kunst.stück wine’s positioning on the ultra-premium level and its introduction at the wine world’s most prestigious events will guarantee important, long-term attention by the press. The possibility to exhibit at the Kellerei Kaltern-Caldaro winecenter will ensure further visibility, in particular on an international level, given that the winery’s retail outlet is the destination, year round, of visitors from all of Europe. Right from its start as a project of the feld72 group, the Winecenter has gained a reputation as a point of encounter between art and wine. It serves as a permanent home for works by Andrea and Josef Rainer Varesco, and every year welcomes artists of the calibre of Roland Moroder, Robert Bosisio, Ernst Mülle, and Josef Scherer. Finally, the winning artist will receive an award of 1000 euros.
This extraordinary wine will be officially presented in autumn 2020 as part of a special event.
