Cantina Terlano is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives and is well known for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. The longevity of their wines is due to a combination of the high mineral content of the soils, old vines, carefully managed vineyards with low yields per vine, and the rigorous selection of heathy and fully mature grapes.

Wine-making in Terlano traditionally involves the use of wooden barrels. Special emphasis is also placed on the “sur lie” method, with the wines often left to age on the yeast for years before being bottled and left to slowly mature to perfection. This slow maturation process gives the wines their specific character and complexity. The focus is on developing the complex secondary and tertiary aromas rather than the primary aroma.

Vorberg is a rich and highly complex wine that impresses for its minerality and considerable capacity for development allowing the full potential of this grape variety to show.

A fresh light yellow with slightly greenish hue. Hints of herbs and spices, including aniseed, mint and sage, as well as nuances of fruit aromas, especially apricot, mandarin, honeydew melon, passion fruit, all underpinned with salty mineral components. On the palate, Vorberg is complex, textural and delicate, offering a creamy softness combined with an aromatic minerality and a very long finish
