Cantina Andriano

Cantina Andriano was founded in 1893, which makes it one of the oldest cooperatives in Alto Adige but many experts claim it is the oldest. The village of Andrian is one of the three that can call their wines Terlaner Classico (the other two villages are Nalles and Terlano), a very famous wine in this part of the country coming from the historic growing area.

In 2008, Andriano merged with Cantina Terlano; therefore, all the fruit from Adriano’s approximately 50 hectares is vinified at the Terlano winery under the highly respected winemaking team lead by Rudy Kofler. As a first step, yields were considerably reduced and under the new management the wines have instantly achieved a degree of precision rarely reached in the past with intense mineral character and rich complex fruit. Also the wine’s presentation was completely revamped to reflect the quality of the wines, which tend to be made in a softer, fleshier style than those made at Terlano.

The wines from Cantina Andriano have evolved since establishment. In the words of the estate, the wines ‘reflect our constant quest for new ways to convey time-honored traditions into the present and to preserve them for the future’.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

"The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Andrius opens with a smoky blend of flint stones and dried herbs, giving way to crushed green apples. This is luxuriously round and soothing with ripe lime-tinge apples and green melon, all guided by juicy acidity. The 2022 finishes with staining length yet only lightly structured, ending on candied lemon rinds and mint nuances. Lovely." 91 points, Eric Guido, Trentino-Alto Adige: Pushing the Limits, Vinous (March 2024)

(Pinot Grigio 2022) "Bright, pale medium yellow. Aromas of pear, white flowers, hazelnut and herbs. Moderately big, suave, and fairly deep with a stony minerality currently dominating the palate. Excellent persistence on the bright finish." 91 points, Ian D'Agata, Terroir Sense (April 2024)
