HISTORY AND COMPANY
A winery that needs no introduction, that of Terlano, which for decades has represented the best that South Tyrol can express in terms of finesse and longevity. Founded in 1893 in the town of the same name not far from Merano, the Terlano winery is one of the most avant-garde producer cooperatives not only in the whole of Alto Adige, but also in the whole Italian peninsula, to the point where it can be taken as a symbol of the most perfect mechanism of cooperation in the wine sector. Its 143 members cultivate a total of 165 hectares of vineyards, equal to a total annual production that greatly exceeds one million bottles. Mind-boggling numbers, which go hand in hand with the best wines of the region, white and red, punctually able to agree with a few other audiences and critics. So Antonio Galloni of Wine Advocate in 2011: “The best South Tyrolean wines I have tasted this year come from Cantina Terlano. In short, they are reference wines. Wines that cannot be missing from any important winery ". A road, that of the most absolute quality, which the members of Cantina di Terlano have undertaken with conviction over the decades, and which has earned them fame and recognition on the Italian and international wine market. And then here is pinot bianco, chardonnay, pinot grigio, müller thurgau, gewürztraminer and sauvignon blanc, then again lagrein, schiava, pinot noir and torilan: vines that are exalted in their essentiality if processed in traditional labels, and that become names - by now - high-sounding if interpreted in the "label-selections": Terlaner, Winkl, Kreuth, Vorberg, Gries, Siebeneich, Siemegg, Monticol, Quarz, Nova Domus, Lunare, Porphyr. In a nutshell, names that over the years have earned, rightly so, the prestige and international notoriety, transform the Terlano winery itself into a veritable institution not only of Alto Adige wine, but of the entire Italian wine scene
