rector of Termeno and member of the Austrian Parliament,
Cantina Tramin is among the oldest cooperatives in the region.
Our wines, authentic expressions of a unique terroir, are created from grapes grown by our 290 growers, with the pride of knowing that each bottle contains a compendium of philosophy of life and work: rigor, dedication, confidence and creativity. The new headquarters of Cantina Tramin, opened in 2010, expresses these values through an architectural synthesis that unites past and future, wood and iron, glass and cement, transparency and darkness. The awarded project is designed by Tscholl Werner. His plans incorporated the structure of the original cellar as the basis of the new building so as not to take even a meter of land from the vineyards and popular and valuable; because of this sensitivity, his design was chosen over the competitors. The structure blends perfectly with the natural surroundings: this architectural gesture is revealed in a carving that evokes the form and
color of Termeno’s vineyards, and draws a sharp contrast with the landscape to offer a new understanding of the region.When viewed from the outside the building is striking for its curves; the inside of the space is a thorough, thought-through winery with areas reserved for cellar workers and for the pleasure of visitors. From the main building extend two long green wings running to the enoteca and tasting room, a luminated glass bubble suspended between heaven and earth that allows visitors to experience every sense of Termeno. Literally overlooking this green and blue part of Südtirol - Alto Adige, while lifting a glass of Gewürtraminer to your lips, do not be surprised to hear the song of the wine, or fall in love with the panoramic view of the foothills, while almost touching the fragrant orchards and plump grapes of our vineyards.
