List of products by brand Terlano
When the winery was born - in 1893 - agriculture was one of the driving factors of the local economy. But apart from some haggard pioneers who already a century earlier, inspired by the example of the Rhineland, had imported precious vines from Germany and France, the agricultural sector languished in a state of strong backwardness, dominated by a few landowners.
Even in viticulture, therefore, it was the large landowners who dictated the rules. Just to escape this dependence, 24 small winemakers from Terlano decided to join together by founding the winery. Although at the end of the nineteenth century in South Tyrol the ratio between the reds and whites produced was 80:20, Terlano had already emerged as a production area for white wines in 1893, and over time has consolidated this position. Today, 70 percent of the production at Cantina di Terlano is made up of white wines, and 30 percent of red wines.
