Terlano’s tradition as a wine terroir dates back over 2000 years. That vines thrive so well in the lee of Monzoccolo is due to the mild, almost Mediterranean climate with hot sunny days and cool nights during the ripening time. The striking red, easily warmed porphyry soil of Terlano also contributes to the high quality of the grapes. In the heart of this South Tyrolean wine region the Terlano winery was established in 1893. Today the co-operative has over 200 members and a total area of 240 hectares. 70% of the vineyard acreage is planted with white grapes. In modern cellars the fruits of this careful, natural cultivation are turned into wine with that perfect touch and the necessary controls.Because of the mineral content of the wines the region of Terlano is also frequently likened to French vine growing areas. The Terlano wine characteristics, the precise fruit, and the fine yet strong aroma lead experts to compare the wine with mature vintage Champagnes.

The Terlan Winery, also known as Cantina Terlano, is a renowned winegrowing cooperative in the heart of the Italian region of South Tyrol.

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.
