Cantina Tramin, the home of Gewürztraminer, was established in 1898, in Trentino Alto Adige region, as a small project initiated by Christian Schrott, a priest from Termeno and a member of the Austrian Parliament. The aim was to provide sustenance and a future for mountain viticulturists. Through the strength of this union, Cantina Tramin has grown over time to become one of the most renowned cooperative wineries in the region and a recognised example worldwide.
In 1971, Tramin merged with the historic Cantina Sociale of Egna, founded in 1893. This union brought together a wealth of traditions and vineyards, including the prestigious Mazzon and Glen vineyards dedicated to Pinot Nero. With the arrival of our winemaker Willi Stürz in the 1990s, a clear shift towards quality emerged, leading to the launch of the Selezione wines project. This selection now includes Nussbaumer, Terminum, Unterebner, Stoan, Freisinger, Maglen, Urban, and Loam – the pinnacle of their winemaking expertise and the result of careful selection from our finest vineyards. From then on, our entire production has been oriented towards excellence.
Working together to create wines that are a harmonious expression of our environment is the guiding principle of Cantina Tramin.
Pinot Bianco, also known as Pinot Blanc, is a white grape variety that is highly regarded for its elegance and versatility. It is believed to be a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape and is grown in several wine regions around the world.
Pinot Bianco wines typically exhibit a pale straw yellow color. On the nose, they offer delicate aromas of white flowers, citrus fruits, and green apples, often with subtle hints of almond or honey.
On the palate, it is known for its crisp acidity and refreshing character. It has a medium body and a smooth texture, with flavours of fresh apples, pears, and sometimes a touch of minerality. The wine’s acidity provides a lively and balanced structure.
The grape is often vinified as a dry white wine, allowing its pure fruit flavours and vibrant acidity to shine. It can also be used in sparkling wine production, contributing to the blend’s elegance and finesse.
As a versatile variety, Pinot Bianco pairs well with a range of dishes. It complements seafood, salads, poultry, and lighter pasta dishes, as well as soft and mild cheeses. Its versatility and food-friendly nature make it a popular choice for many wine enthusiasts.
