The "Cantina Andrian" winery is located in the municipality of Terlan in the Adige Valley (province of Bolzano) in the Italian wine-growing area of South Tyrol
region). It was founded in 1893 as the first winery cooperative in South Tyrol. It was taken over by the Terlan Winery
in 2008, but the wines were marketed under their own label. Klaus Andergassen is responsible as managing director, Rudi Kofler as cellar master. The company motto is "tradition through movement". The vineyards extend over gentle hills at an altitude between 260 and 340 metres above sea level on Gantkofel (dolomite), limestone and porphyry soils. They comprise 70 hectares of vineyards. The white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Müller-Thurgau as well as the red wine varieties Lagrein, Vernatsch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Merlot are cultivated and processed
The wines are developed with the aim of expressing the special terroir
. Depending on the type of wine, they are aged in steel tanks, in large traditional wooden barrels or in barriques. The large product range includes many white, rosé and red wines DOC South Tyrolean from the various subzones. The selection wines are made from selected, late and handpicked physiologically ripe
grapes from the older Andrian vineyards with a minimum age of 15 years and extremely low yields (around 42 hl/Ha). Premium wines include the red wines "Lagrein Tor di Lupo" (Lagrein), "Merlot Riserva Gant" and "Vernatsch Bocado" as well as the white wine "Sauvignon Blanc Floreado". About 400,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
