Colterenzio Pinot Bianco "Weisshaus"

Colterenzio Pinot Bianco “Classic”


  • Pinot Blanc from up to 40 year-old vines, vertical espalier and pergola trained vineyards.
  • Vineyards at an altitude of 1480 feet, soils are morainal with gravel and calcium carbonate and the microclimate is cool with striking contrasts between day and night time temperatures.

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Bianco

Elaboration: Fermentation takes place both in stainless steel tanks and in large oak casks at a constant temperature of 65ﹾF. The new wines refines separately for 10 months on
fine lees which are regularly stirred up. The final blend refines shortly before bottling. Yields: 50hl/ha

Tasting Notes:  Bright yellow colour with green nuances; attractive ripe orchard fruits on the nose; elegant and multi-faceted, yeasty with hints of honeydew melon and citrus fruits supported by a firm acidity, typical of the vintage and leading to a flinty aftertaste. This Pinot Blanc is distinguishing for its elegant aroma of ripe apple combined with straw a zesty acidity.




Colterenzio is one of the newest wineries in South Tyrol, composed of over 300 families working together.  This is a new-generation cooperative that smashes preconceptions, proving that a humble “coop” can consistently deliver some of the most transparent, expressive wines in the top flight region of Alto Aldige.

Member-winegrowers farm their grapes on a total of 300 hectares; the vineyards are located in one of the best wine growing sub-districts of Alto Adige, on altitudes ranging from 230 to 650 meters with 12 different varieties cultivated.  Ecology is a driving principle here – Farming is sustainable and the winery was built with permaculture in mind.
