Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950’s and 1960’s ranking with the greatest white wines of the world were made here.
Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige coops. At that time, twenty-four growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there, and today Terlano has approximately 100 members, farms 150 hectares and has an annual production of roughly 1.2 million bottles.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; destemming followed by slow must fermentation at a controlled temperature and gentle agitation of the must in stainless steel tanks; malolactic fermentation and aging in big wooden barrels for 7-10 months.
