Pinot Bianco is grown on the hillside vineyards of Cornaiano at an altitudes ranging from 450 to 500 m above sea level in well aired vineyards. The area in which they are grown is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation. Pinot Bianco has compact bunches of small greenish grapes. It is the most white grape variety grown in Cornaiano. A delicate aroma, slight apple blossom bouquet and a lively palate make Pinot Bianco the ideal aperitif wine or an excellent accompaniment for white meat and fish. - Winery Note
Cantina Girlan was founded in 1923 in an ancient farmstead from the XVI century. Back then, 23 winegrowers laid the foundation stones of what was later to become the winery we see today. The walls, steeped in ancient tradition, and the labyrinthine corridors of the cellar harbour the secrets of state-of-the-art winemaking technology and hold the ideal conditions for ageing our wines.
Today, about 200 greatly committed and motivated winegrowers and their families farm an area covering about 215 hectares of vineyards in the best production areas of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina. Our enologist, Gerhard Kofler, keeps in close personal contact with the winegrowers and provides his professional advice during the growing season. This beneficial exchange of expertise sets the foundations for producing highest quality wines.
The grapes, entirely hand-harvested, are received according to a precise harvest calendar and gently processed according to their quality, variety and origin. Our Cantina produces three distinct wine lines: Selezioni, Vigneti and Classici.
