In 1923, 23 South Tyrolean vintners joined in the Wine cellar Girlan and chose a historic farmer's house from the 16th century as their headquarters. Today the union counts roundabout 200 members with a total of 220 hectares cultivation area in the region's very best terroirs.
Regarding the cultivation of vines, Girlan bets on the regional autochthone grape varieties such as Vernatsch, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Apart from these the vintners also plant international grape varieties, aiming at wines with character, which are still connected to the region. Hand in and with mother nature and a gentle vinification process the vinters' union manages the balancing act between tradition and modernity, elegance and power.
At least, this is proven by numerous prices and awards from renowned wine competitions and critics, which the Italian wine growers are collecting with their wines.
