"Pinot Bianco has always been one of the most important wines at Cantina Terlano; it lends powerful expression to the terroir where our grapes mature. As a varietal, the delicate and above all mineral Pinot Bianco, is a hallmark of the winery." Rudi Kofler
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.
Altitude: 250 - 500 m a. s. l.

Smell: On the nose this classic Pinot Bianco scores with crisp notes of pear mingling with aromas of raspberry and lime, plus a touch of camomile and lemon grass to round off the composition.
Taste: Body and balance sum up the Pinot Bianco, which intrigues the palate with the fruit of the pear and quince aromas combined with a salty minerality. The wine tickles the tongue and goes on to deliver a persistent aftertaste.
A good companion with hors d'oeuvres such as vitello tonnato or salmon and tuna carpaccio; courgette flowers with a stracchino cheese or in combination with burrata; avocado salad; regional dishes like spinach spaetzle or schlutzkrapfen; also in combination with spaghetti alla carbonara; scallops au gratin, and grilled scampi, dentex or sea bream.
This Pinot Bianco is without a doubt the star amongst the wines of the St. Michael-Eppan cooperative winery. It is simply the wine to express most convincingly the quality potential South Tyrolean white wine and the philosophy behind the production methods used in winery. A straw colour with green lustre, it reveals a broad palette of scents, in particular apple, apricot, pear and a slight cedar wood fragrance. With its velvety smoothness and full-bodied acidity which underscore its strength and grandeur, this wine is a delight on the palate. A complete wine you don't come across every day, to satisfy many demands made by sophisticated cuisine.
Typical South Tyrolean red wine made the Schiava grape, with a strong ruby to garnet red colour. Its bouquet is characterised by a broad palette as fruity aromas, forest fruits through to cherries, which then open up and intensify on the palate. Delicate and yet at the same time with a strong structure, this St. Magdalener is a pleasant, tempting wine. It goes especially well with roasts, game and spicy cheeses. It gains in strength and intensity when aged in the cellar.
Brilliant straw yellow colour with a light green shimmer. Clean, quite pronounced varietal aroma with refined fruity notes (peach, pear). Dry, medium bodied, well balanced, grapey flavour with a crisp, refreshing finish and persistent aftertaste. The lively acidity is well integrated in the wine's fruit structure.
The farm ham combines in itself the taste and the typical form of the bacon as well as the delicacy and the wholehearted taste of cooked.
