Pinot Grigio / Alto Adige - Südtirol Doc

The Pinot Grigio grape variety is cultivated in Salorno, at an altitude of 220 m ASL, along the river Adige.

Of a straw-yellow colour, the aroma has intense and clearly definable flavours of pear and Golden Delicious apple, jasmine and lily of the valley. On the palate, it is soft and markedly sapid.

Lagrein / Alto Adige - Südtirol Doc

Lagrein, an autochthonous grape variety, has been cultivated for centuries in South Tyrolean vineyards. The variety was first documented in 1526. In order to attain a correct polyphenolic ripeness, this variety requires high temperatures during ripening periods and therefore the hills surrounding the river Adige are particularly suited to its cultivation. Of a ruby red colour with deep violet hues, Dürer-Weg Lagrein aroma has fruity notes evoking raspberries, blueberries and violet. On the palate it is warm and dry, with soft and sweet tannins.

Vine Lagrein

Vineyard location Salorno (BZ)

Exposure and altitude West; 400 m ASL

Soil composition Silty, originating from siltstone rockslide debris

Training system Traditional; simple Trentino pergola

Planting density 5.000 vines/hectare

Vinification process
Manual harvesting in early October; fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks; static decantation; ageing on the lees for about 5/6 months in fibre-glass reinforced concrete tanks, and partly in oak barriques before bottling.

Trattmannhof - Pinot Bianco / Alto Adige - Südtirol Doc

The German word ‘Hof’ refers in South Tyrol to the traditional farmhouse and the attendant farm buildings. At Trattmannhof, an enchanting viticultural area, located on the hill of Salorno, a well-preserved votive chapel, embellished with a fresco of Our Lady of Good Help, is situated. The young, stony and well-drained soil originating from the crumbling of local porphyry is ideal for the cultivation of the Pinot Bianco grape variety. Rich and full-bodied, Trattmannhof Pinot Bianco has a distinctive aroma of apricot and Golden Delicious apple.

About us

Company details

Officially established in 1948, Cantina La Vis is located in a village that shares its name, in the heart of the Avisiane hills. In fact, its origins date back to when the Cembran family built the first part of the current production structure in 1850.
The winery has a collective heritage of prestigious wine production and its 800 members tend over more 800 hectares of vineyards.
The 1980 Progetto Zonazione (Zoning Project), whose motto was ‘the right vine at the right place’, was the foundation for the quality of La Vis wines, which has over time brought to life important and rich wines in this inaccessible and difficult land through an enthusiastic member base.
Over time, the TrentoDoc, Bio, Qualità (Quality) and Anchise projects have been launched, maintaining a commitment to one value – namely that of mutuality, a deeply-rooted principle of the cooperative movement, while facing a global market increasingly tied to entrepreneurial logic and profit.
Studies and research under the “Progetto Qualità”, linked to the zoning project, have led La Vis agronomists and oenologists to identify outstanding vineyards, their wines becoming part of the Autoctoni, Ritratti and Bio lines, the company’s high-end labels.
The Autoctoni line satisfies the need to bring high-quality Trentino wines to the market, with grapes that really exalt the genius loci. This is the case with the gentle “Sette Fontane” Nosiola, the subtle “Piaggi” Schiava, the strong “Rover” Terodego, the surprising “L’Altro Manzoni Maso Franch” Incrocio Manzoni, the elegant Lagrein “Greggi”, or the ‘high mineral’ “Cadrobbi” Müller Thurgau.
The richness and variety of the land has also meant international varieties have found a preferred location in the Trentino area over the past century. The Ritratti line is grown in locations of the highest prestige, proposing the fine “Del Diaol” Chardonnay, the fragrant “Maso Clinga” Gewürztraminer, the aromatic “Maso Tratta” Sauvignon, or the intense Cabernet Sauvignon, the enveloping Pinot noir or the wonderfully refreshing Pinot Grigio.
Ever true to their respect of the land, some members have chosen to embrace the Bio (organic) cause, thus leading to the creation of the award-winning “Ai Padri” Gewürztraminer, the complex “Manci” Chardonnay and the elegant “Arcadia” Pinot Grigio and the fragrant and fruity “Nailam” Marzemino wines, all grown on the Trento hills.
The range is completed by the Simboli line, created to satisfy the requests of wine lovers who like their food at restaurants to be accompanied by excellent wines, everyday, and the Storie di Vite line. Although maintaining the pleasant and authentic character of Trentino wines, these two lines are specifically targeted at the modern market, reflecting an offer that is becoming increasingly popular with families.
Last but not least, the two new LA VIS sparkling wines, the 100% white Chardonnay and the Rosé (Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes), are also highly appreciated.
