Welcome to Bordeaux Month here are Philglas & Swiggot.
Picture yourself amidst rolling vine-covered hills, where the whisper of the breeze dances with the symphony of grapevines. In Bordeaux, every bottle is a masterpiece, a symphony of flavours waiting to be uncorked. The world's most prestigious châteaux, from Margaux to Pauillac, invite you to experience their heritage, where centuries of passion meet the artistry of the present.
Cantina Terlan was founded in 1893 in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Cantina Terlan has approximately 100 members, it farms 150 hectares and has an annual production of roughly 1.2 million bottles.
Special older vintages have been stored in their valuable 'vinotheque', and today roughly 12,000 bottles dating back to 1955 are maturing in their cellars. This wine collection of older vintages is absolutely unique in Italy and proves that Terlano’s wines are able to age harmoniously for decades. Terlan is known as one of the very finest white wine producers in all of Italy, and their exceptional 'Rarita' wines are aged in tank for more than 10 years before they are released to the market.
The unique microclimate at the foot of Mount Tschöggel determines the potential age-worthiness and the characteristics of the wines. The soils are very rich in schists and porphyry, a rocky nature that allows for heat accumulation and excellent water drainage.
