More info

This region owes its Italian name of "Alto-Adige" to the river Adige that flows through on its way to the Adriatic. The sleepy village of Termeno or Tramin is thought to be the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewürztraminer. The vineyards are made up of clay soils, known for their cooling properties for the vines.

Made by winemaker Will Stűrz, who has been previously nominated "Italian winemaker of the Year" by the prestigious Gambero Rosso and makes some of the best white wines in Italy. The grapes were gently pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 21°C. No malolactic fermentation took place, retaining the fresh and vibrant character of the wine. Refinement took place in stainless steel vats until bottled.

Cantina Tramin

Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level.

In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.

Jancis Robinson MW says the following about Cantina Tramin:

"Cantina Tramin is a reliable source (of top quality dry white wines). The sleepy village of Termeno/Tramin, is the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewürztraminer (spiced Traminer) for its heady aroma. Even today Tramin really is very good for Traminer, and has been waking up in response to a discernible fashion for this powerfully scented, full-bodied varietal wine throughout Italy."
