It emerged from the merger of the originally four Kalterer cellar cooperatives. The Erste Kellerei and Neue Kellerei (founded in 1900 and 1925, respectively) had already merged to form Erste + Neue in 1986. In 1992 the farmer's winery merged with the anniversary winery (founded in 1906 and 1908) to form the Cantina Kaltern. The last step towards the joint winery took place in 2016.
