TEROLDEGO'S AREA OF ORIGIN

The Teroldego is a native grape from the Piana Rotaliana, more specifically the land at the corner going from the Rocchetta – Val di Non mouth to the Adige river, on what used to be the old bed of the Noce mountain stream, which was diverted to the south in 1854. This gives the Piana Rotaliana the special features of a hilly terrain: below a thin layer of soil, we find several metres, of gravel, sand and pebbles brought down to the valley by the waters of the Noce stream when there were no banks to contain it.

The Dorigati brothers’ vineyards are located in Piana Rotaliana, a cone with fine soil features,ideal for viticulture. Over the centuries, the floods of Stream Noce created parcels of land which contained a good quantity of slime, -rich in minerals- , and an excellent power of drainage, thanks to the presence of cobblestones.  Teroldego Rotaliano DOC, the principal autochthonous vineyard of Trentino, is situated in this strip of land. The ideal climatic conditions together with an expert viticulture, that follows the pattern of the pergola of Trentino, permit the Ageing of high-quality grapes and the production of excellent red wines. “We firmly believe that the best innovation is the valorization of the products’ identity respecting the tradition. We think that the care and the attention to the land are essential because the quality of a single wine originates from the vineyard, respecting the natural time. We strive for the equilibrium between plants and land, wine and man. Wine is the result of a unique synergy between the wine grower and the environment. Every wine is a different path, a story, an evolution, which makes it unique.For over 150 years, Making wine”means this for us”
