Südtirol/Alto Adige is the dynamic winegrowing region at the northern end of Italy that combines a brisk Alpine climate, mountain viticulture and complex geology with the brilliance of Mediterranean sunshine. At Cantina Tramin the vineyards are cared for by the many hands of the 300 small growers whose heritage it is to coax the best out of their grapes, culminating in wines which reflect the uniqueness of the area. The vines for this wine are trained according to Pergola and Guyot systems on southwestern facing slopes, yielding 75 hectolitres per hectare. The vineyard soil is made up of clay, calcareous gravel and sand.

The grapes were destemmed and fermented at 28 to 30°C in stainless steel and cement vats where malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was aged for a minimum of six months in cement vats and oak barrels of different dimensions.

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."
