More about this wine

Andrian

Andrian

In 1893, the vignerons of Andriano took a decisive step and combined their skills and energy to form the first winemakers' cooperative in South Tyrol. With dedication and a keen sense of taste, they constantly strive to achieve and maintain a level of quality that can withstand the test of time. They have been operating under the auspices of the Terlano wineries since 2008, but the Andrian brand and its wines are now more famous and independent than ever. The production is about 450,000 bottles per year from 80 hectares of vineyards. At Andrian, they understand that stability requires flexibility and don't just allow things to deviate over time. Instead, they seek to take into account the changes that time brings and evolve with them.

Alto-Adige

Alto-Adige

Alto Adige (or Sudtirol for German-speaking two-thirds of its inhabitants) is located in northern Italy and borders Veneto to the east, Lombardy to the west and the Tyrol region of Austria to the north. Stretching to 47 degrees north latitude and altitude over 3050 meters, Alto Adige is a region with topographic and climatic extremes. The main wine-growing areas in the region follow the Adige river valley from Merano in the north to Trentino in the south and are planted both at the bottom of the valley and on its slopes, many of which are incredibly steep. Most wines from this region are produced by cooperatives which, due to the need for efficiency in harvesting, wine production and trade, have become known for their constant quality and reliable quantity. Nowadays, there is a tendency to increase the number of independent producers, which also gain a good reputation. The dominant local varieties are the red Schiava and Lagrein, the most common being Schiava (Vernatsch in German), which makes wine with a medium body, low alcohol and tannin levels and is often mixed with the denser Lagrein to give more depth and power of wine. The white varieties used in Alto Adige are the traditional German Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer, as well as the French Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio. The Pinot Noir plantations have recently increased as well.
