Tasting Notes

Located in Alto Adige's Dolomite Mountains, in the foothills of the Alps, Terlano's distinctive location and extraordinary terroir are the key to the development of these stunning wines.

Staff Pick Notes

When a grape earns the designation "classic" or "noble" it's because the wine it makes has become a household name. Fashion, trends, and seasons of the year might dictate who drinks wine on a given day, and bottles like Terlan's pinot grigio effortless prove why this varietal has climbed to the top. The Dolomite mountains in northern Italy hold a secret of Cantina Terlano's particular success. Here pinot grigio vines grow on red porphyric granite, which has the dual benefit of retaining the sun's warmth and easily draining excess moisture. A youthful Südtirol pinot like this will showcase pleasant orchard fruit aromas and finish with a significant mineral zing. Drink it today as an aperitivo, with cured meats and fresh cheeses, or to complement fish and seafood dishes.

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is an Italian synonym for the French Pinot Gris variety, but many more people have had Pinot Grigio than a Pinot Gris. At its most basic level, the grape produces varietals that are smooth and easy to drink, and perfect with a huge range of dishes that just beg to be paired with a fresh white wine. There is an entire spectrum of Pinot Gris/Grigio, however, the best of them being...
