More info

Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards planted between 250 and 550 metres above sea level, in the calcareous clay and gravel soils common to the area of Sella near Tramin. The name of this wine comes from the patron of Sella, Saint Mauritius.

The grapes for this wine were harvested in small bins and then gently pressed off to steel tanks where the must was allowed to ferment at a controlled temperature of 19°C, without malolactic fermentation. 80% of the wine was aged in stainless steel and 20% in large oak casks of 30 to 40 hectolitres, imparting subtle oak complexity.

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."
