About the Winery:
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 190 hectares. That is the equivalent of some 1.5 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."
Rudi Kofler


Wine Description:

Color: Full, intensive straw yellow
Smell: 
The stimulating aroma of the Gewürztraminer is reminiscent of lychee and mango with delicate notes of honeysuckle. The aromatic spectrum also includes notes of rose petal, which are typical of this variety..
Taste: 
The unique quality of the aromatic character of the wine is continued on the palate, with fresh fruit and lively acidity combining with mineral notes to leave a very round and at the same time firm impression.


Food Pairing:
A good match with spicy dishes and sweet and sour creations with an Asian touch, squash gnocchi and creamed squash soup, as well as boiled ham with horseradish sauce, sweet and sour wok vegetables with chicken breast strips or shrimps, and wiener schnitzel with potato salad.
