Scadenagut Malans


Here you have a mix of new and old: Tradition and modernity – tasteful in every way.

On the ground floor of the castle Bothmar, one of the most impressive and historic

buildings in the idyllic wine-growing village Malans, the winemaker Peter Wegelin used to create his wines until 2003.  At the well-preserved “Schlosstorkel” visitors still can admire the ancient wooden wine press during guided tours.

Today Peter Wegelin and his team vinify their wine directly in the vineyard in the pavilion-like modern building. The grapes are processed in the bright basement; the wine matures in the elegant barrique cellar and is tasted in the bright tasting room with an amazing view over the Rhine valley and the surrounding Alps. A small detail: Even Wegelin’s small dog fits exactly to the colors of tasteful interiors of the modern tasting room. Whether intended or not: whatever we found here is just right.
