Cantina Tramin: cooperating for Gewürztraminer

Cantina Tramin, in South Tyrol, is the cradle of the Gewürztraminer wine variety. It was established in 1898 by a priest and politician, don Christian Schrott, who was the priest of the Termeno parish as well as a member of the Austrian Parliament.

Since then, the groundbreaking cooperative has grown in leaps and bounds. Today, it is owned by three hundred farmers, who work 250 hectares of land spread between steep slopes in Termeno, Ora, Montagna and Egna. The owners employ biodynamic and organic techniques in 15 hectares, and aim to expand such methods to the whole estate.

One of the products of Termeno’s typical variety (the name itself, Gewürztraminer, is German for “aromatic Termeno”) is the award-winning Nussbaumer, which you can enjoy – with many other excellent wines – in Cantina Tramin’s tasting area, set up within the new headquarters designed by architect Werner Tscholl.
