In any case, the 750cl bottle distinction would never be enough by itself. Additional quality characteristics and criteria had to be established to truly convince consumers. For this purpose, local wine producers and external wine experts got together and formed a quality circle, whose aim was to create a binding set of standards, a Charter, for the Kalterersee wine. And so a debate was initiated and the questions began: What is the optimal Vernatsch grape percentage in Kaltern's vineyards? How far can the yield be reduced to optimize production? How can an optimal vineyard and quality selection be achieved? How should the ideal Kalterersee wine taste in the future? Can old wine making traditions be adapted today, perhaps from a time when the Kalterersee was made from a selected mix of grape varieties and not exclusively from the Vernatsch grape?
