Entiklar has been settled since prehistoric times, as revealed by discoveries of stone, bronze and iron objects, in the area of the ruins of the fortress Linticlar, which towers almost 100 metres above the present-day Castel Turmhof.
From many documents, it is clear that wine growing always played a significant role in the economic development of Entiklar. Vines were cultivated here as early as the era of the Rhaetians, and, in particular, in Roman, times.
The "Linticlar estate" is first mentioned in records dating from 1225 A.D. A hundred years later, the Cathedral Chapter of Trento, was being supplied with wine from the estate "auf dem Püchel", also known as "mansu a coste", on the orders of the Counts of Tyrol. Then, in 1537, the name "Turnhof" was first used, and later there are occurrences of the designation "Thurner Hof". With the drawing up of a new land register in 1848, the name finally became officially "Turmhof". The estate has belonged to the family since 1675.
In 1857, Karl Pardatscher, the owner of the Turmhof wine estate at the time, took part in the first Imperial Austrian agricultural and forestry exhibition in Vienna, with eight different types of wine. He received great praise from the official tasting committee, especially for an 1838 white wine, which was considered the "spiciest".
Hilde and Herbert Tiefenbrunner set off a new direction in 1968 with the opening of a wine outlet at the Turmhof. Wines intended for sale off the premises were now bottled.
Gradually, new markets were found at home and abroad, and production of bottled wines increased accordingly.
The Tiefenbrunner family is still fully committed to the wine-growing tradition.
Thus, the preservation of the character of the grape varieties, and of the high quality of the grapes themselves, remain the basic principle of the work in the vineyards and the cellars.
The highest expectations of quality, and successful traditions of cultivation and grape pressing, have contributed to the success of the products of the wine estate. It has received regular national and international awards.
