Winename: The Eisack river is the main tributary of the Etsch (Adige), and its river valley is called the Eisack-Tal. It rises at the Brenner pass and runs into the Etsch at Bozen. Ancient authors called the river 'Isarcus' or 'Isargus'. Only Strabo called it 'Atagis' rather than Isarcus. Since the 12th century the German settlers gradually changed the name to Ysages, Ysac and Ysach, which became Eysach in the 13th century, later Eisack. Our 'Kalter Keller' wine estate consisting of 1.5 hectares is situated in the southern part of this valley where wine-growing has been carried on for millenniums and where there is a strong connection between the valley, the river and local wine-growing. For this reason we have chosen this ancient name for our Gewürztraminer.
