The. Agr. CANTINA GIRLAN
The first time the word GIRLAN / Cornaiano is mentioned is the distant 1085: is the name of the ancient wine village whose vineyards extend to an altitude between 250 ed i 550 meters. At the beginning, in 1923, the winemakers who joined together to found this winery were 23. Today they have become 200 and are located on 220 hectares and in this way, this "extended family" owns and vinifies the best vineyards of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina. To the north, the Alps protect these predominantly sandy and clayey and mineral-rich soils, creating the ideal climatic conditions for growing vines. The opening towards the wide Val d’Adige to the south favors the favorable influence of the Mediterranean climate. The strong temperature variations between day and night, especially in the fall, instead they give the wine a marked and elegant aroma and great shelf life. Mazzon, Cornaiano, Gschleier, Appiano Monte and Monticolo are the areas from which their fantastic grapes come: the winemaker is first of all a winemaker.

It is mainly vinified with grapes from the farm TREATMENT, on the slopes of the Mazzon vineyard, and in a very small part from grapes coming from the Pinzon area. MAZZON: 10 hectares of vineyards considered one of the best habitats for this vine thanks to soils with a high mineral content such as clay and limestone, and exposure to the afternoon sun.
