ONLINE PRODUCER-LED TASTING SERIES: Cantina Terlano with Philipp Nocker
We are delighted to welcome Philipp Nocker from Cantina Terlano to host a two-part online tasting with the exquisite wines of this iconic Northern Italian estate occuring on ce a fantastic series of 'Meet-the-Winemaker' online tasting sessions: Cantina Terlano with Philipp Nocker Wednesday 21st October 6:30pm – 7:30pm and Wednesday 28th October from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.
Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950s and 1960s, which rank amongst the greatest white wines of the world, were made here.
Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Terlano has approximately 100 members, it farms 150 hectares and has an annual production of roughly 1.2 million bottles.
Under the expert eye of winemaker Rudi Kofler, the wines are sold and marketed according to three different quality categories. Furthermore, special older vintages have been stored in the valuable 'vinotheque', so that today roughly 12,000 bottles from 1955 to the present day are stored and some date back to even earlier days. This wine collection of older vintages is absolutely unique in Italy and proves that Terlano’s wines are able to age harmoniously for decades.
