"Since the Late Middle Ages, the lower zone of Monte Tschöggel has been known as Montigl. 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 is well ventilated and cools down nicely in summer - and produces a well structured and above all elegant Pinot Noir." Rudi Kofler

The Terlan Winery, also known as Cantina Terlano, is a renowned winegrowing cooperative in the heart of the Italian region of South Tyrol. The history of the winery dates back to 1893, when 24 winegrowers joined forces to unite and improve their wine production. Today, Terlan is one of the most famous wine-growing regions in the whole of Italy and the Terlan Winery is considered one of the best wine producers in the country.
The Terlan area, which stretches between Bolzano and Merano, is characterised by its unique geological and climatic conditions. The vineyards of the Terlan Winery are situated at an altitude of 250 to 900 metres above sea level and benefit the warm days and cool nights influenced by the main Alpine ridge. The soils are characterised by calcareous porphyry rock, which gives the wines their characteristic minerality.
The Terlan Winery is best known for its white wines, especially the Terlaner Sauvignon, which has been one of the best wines in Italy for many years. The Terlaner Sauvignon is a complex and elegant wine that captivates with its aromas of gooseberries, peppers and elderflowers as well as its refined acidity structure. But also the other white wines of the winery, such as the Terlaner Pinot Bianco or the Terlaner Chardonnay, are of outstanding quality and stand out for their freshness and liveliness.
In addition to the white wines, the Terlan Winery also produces some red wines, including the Terlan Lagrein and the Terlan Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines are marked by the characteristic Terlan minerality and the fruity aromas that are typical in the region.
The Terlan Winery is a winegrowers' cooperative consisting of about 200 members who together cultivate about 190 hectares of vineyards. The members work according to strict quality criteria and strive to get the best out of their vineyards. The Terlan Winery relies on gentle and sustainable cultivation methods and works closely with the winegrowers to continuously improve the quality of their wines.
The wines of the Terlan Winery are known in many countries around the world and are appreciated by wine lovers and critics alike. The winery has received numerous awards and is considered one of Italy's leading winegrowing cooperatives.
