The estate is located in the municipality of Kaltern (Caldaro) in the Italian wine-growing area South-Tirol (Region Trentino-Alto Adige ). It was founded in the 18th century by the noble family Di Pauli. In the 19th century, the entire lake was owned by the family for a period of 25 years, until it was sold to the municipality of Kaltern in 1901. Anton Baron Di Pauli (1761-1830) was Austrian Trade Minister and earned special services to the wine industry. Thanks to the good relations with the Viennese court, the winery was allowed to decorate itself with the title "K & K Hoflieferant". In 1880 Josef Baron Di Pauli bought the property of Prince Giovanelli in Caldaro. The wines were exported to Russia. Also different restaurants were in the possession of the family, for example the still existing oldest Viennese Stadtheurige "Paulusstube". In 1998, the family joined the Cantina Caldaro on.
Due to inquiries about the now defunct brand "Baron Di Pauli", Cantina Kaltern decided in 1999 to found its own company Baron Di Pauli as a subsidiary and to re-establish it as an independent brand. Responsible cellar master is Thomas Scarizuola. The winery Baron Di Pauli comprises two locations, the "Arzenhof" near Caldaro and the "Höfl unterm Stein" in Söll near Tramin. The Arzenhof covers 10.5 hectares of vineyards at 250 to 400 meters above sea level on a moraine cone directly above the Kalterer See. Here are the varieties . Lagrein. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown. Of these, the three red wines "Arzio" (Merlot / Cabernet), "Carano" (Lagrein) and "lime kiln" (from very old Vernatsch vines) are produced. The Höfl unterm Stein covers 4.5 hectares of vineyards in 480 to 550 meters above sea level on loamy limestone gravel soils, mainly with the Gewurztraminer, as well as the varieties Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc are planted. It produces the white wines "Exilissi" and "Elix" (Gewürztraminer), "Enosi" (Riesling / Sauvignon), "Kinesis" (Sauvignon) and "Dynamis" (Riesling).
