The vineyard soils are made up of calcareous clay, limestone and a high presence of stone. Indeed, the name this wine refers to the stony soil in which the grapes are grown, which in local dialect is referred to as "stoan."

The grapes were gently pressed. The must was fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures of between 18 to 20˚C in large oak barrels, where partial malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was clarified through natural sedimentation of the particles. The wine was matured in large Austrian oak casks of 30 to 40 hectolitres, for a period of 11 months. During maturation the wine was in constant contact with the fine lees, adding texture and complexity. After the wine had been blended and bottled, it was cellared for a further three months, prior to release.

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."
