Founded in 1893, the Cantina Terlano winery is now one of the leading wine growers’ cooperatives in South Tyrol, with a current membership of 143 growers working a total area of 165 hectares. That is the equivalent of some 1.2 million bottles of wine a year.
We and our members have long had a strong focus on quality. That has attracted praise and recognition on the Italian and international wine markets, and in spite of its relatively small size, Cantina Terlano is now well established in the world of wine.
Named after the winemaking village of Tramin in the South Tyrolean Unterland, Gewürztraminer is a familiar item in the region’s white wine repertoire. With its floral fruitiness and highly aromatic components, this wine has a devoted following and is especially appreciated as an accompaniment to Asian dishes
Lagrein is doubtless one of the local heroes of South Tyrol and today, thanks to a combination of fruity aromas and spicy flavors plus velvety tannins, it is enjoying a veritable renaissance. This indigenous variety has its roots in the South Tyrolean town of Bolzano but it has been a regular on the Terlano wine list for several decades now, too

Six of the wineries located there today can be traced back to the 14th century, a reflection of the fact that the terrace location and fertile soil are ideal for the production of Pinot Noir. The medium-elevation site produces a well structured and above all elegant...
On Terlano’s medium-elevation sites, and especially on the plateau at Montigl, where the southern exposure and regular evening breezes combine to produce ideal conditions, the grapes grow and mature that produce a very elegant Pinot Noir with interesting berry flavors
Delicate as the fine inclusions of quartz in Terlano’s volcanic porphyry rock – that is our Sauvignon Selection, which does full justice to its name. Quartz offers a combination of fine texture, depth and salty aftertaste that has given this noble white an international reputation
The ruined castle towering over the entrance to the village and dating back to 1206 is a majestic sight. Equally powerful and complex is our noble cuvée of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
