Terlan

When the winery was born - in 1893 - agriculture was one of the driving factors of the local economy. But apart from some haggard pioneers who already a century earlier, inspired by the example of the Rhineland, had imported precious vines from Germany and France, the agricultural sector languished in a state of strong backwardness, dominated by a few landowners. Even in viticulture, therefore, it was the large landowners who dictated the rules. Just to escape this dependence, 24 small winemakers from Terlano decided to join together by founding the winery. Although at the end of the nineteenth century in South Tyrol the ratio between reds and whites produced was 80:20, Terlano had already emerged as a production area for white wines in 1893, and over time has consolidated this position. Today, at Cantina di Terlano 70% of the production is made up of white wines, and 30% of red wines. In Terlano, wine production has pre-Roman roots. Thanks to the favorable climate and the lands placed at high altitude, sheltered from floods, the area of ​​Settequerce, San Maurizio and Gries appeared immediately ideal for human settlements. Several archaeological finds (ladles and bronze vessels) testify to a wine culture that dates back to the 5th or 4th century BC. But the certain proof of a prehistoric viticulture came with the discovery of the "Settequerce" roncola, from the late Iron Age. The particular shape of this billhook, with the very curved end of the blade, clearly suggests its function for pruning the vine, also because that type of tool has remained almost unchanged up to the present day. In addition to the billhook, several other finds of similar dating testify to the presence of considerable quantities of grape seeds in that period, demonstrating the fact that viticulture was practiced in Terlano already in the late Iron Age.
