Our favorite Alto Adige Cooperatives

Cantina Tramin
This is one of my favorite wineries on the planet. I first visited them in 2003 where I met and tasted with the soon-to-be-famous Willi Sturtz. Later they moved into one of the coolest winery buildings in all of Italy. Their wines are ethereal, precise, and just so damn good.
300 Owners, 260 Hectares, 100 Points

Cantina Terlano (Terlan)
Where we experienced one of the best tastings of our lifetime, with the Pinot Biancos going back to 1955. A must visit when you go to Alto Adige!
