Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow
its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of
the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy
and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes
ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the
"Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3
Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.
In spite of changeable temperatures in spring, bud break and flowering started

periodically very cool nights, which slowed the ripening process and the harvest
started about a week later than average. The grapes were in perfect health with
optimum physiologic ripeness at harvest time. The white wines present themselves as
very balanced, powerful, juicy and fresh, with a complex structure.
This region owes its Italian name of "Alto-Adige" to the river Adige that flows through
on its way to the Adriatic. The sleepy village of Termeno or Tramin is thought to be the
birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewurztraminer. The
vineyards are made up of clay soils, known for their cooling properties for the vines.
