Growing Conditions

South Tyrol (in Italian Alto Adige and in German Südtirol) is unique in its harmony of opposite, where north and south, the German-speaking and the Italian-speaking worlds come together in a land of snow-covered mountains, fertile valleys and an unbeatable Alpine-Mediterranean climate. And the result is a fascinating microcosmos which yields wines packed with character. The Oltradige terrain and the town of Appiano on the Wine Road, the largest single wine-growing area in South Tyrol, are located in the southern reaches of the region around 10 km from Bolzano, framed by a spellbinding, hilly landscape formed during the last Ice Age and dotted with picturesque towns and hamlets.

One of the most famous and the oldest wine villages in South Tyrol is Cornaiano. Colterenzio is a small area on the outskirts of this village, and looks back on a centuries-old tradition of winemaking: As far back as 1200, its lands and its wines were given the appellation of “vinum schrechpuhlensis” in reference to the area. The hamlet of Colterenzio also gave our cellar its name, as all the founding members came from Colterenzio.

The Alpine barrier, 18,000 hours of sunlight a year, the winds from Lake Garda, the heat during the day and the cool freshness of the night provide the perfect growing conditions for the grapes.

Vineyards at 400-460 metres of altitude. Soils are morainal with deposits of clay and eroded porphyry.


Yielding : 70 hl/ha
