I love this producer. And this Gewurz has all the trademark give-aways of rose petal, lychee, honeysuckle and a touch of spice, all beautifully wrapped in a cleansing mountain-stream minerality. Very dry, and simply delicious.
Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950s and 1960s, which rank amongst the greatest white wines of the world, were made here. Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Terlano has approximately 100 members farming about 150 hectares and is unashamedly a quality focussed co-operative.
