CONSORZIO VINI DEL TRENTINO
THE UNIQUE CHARACTER OF
Although Trentino is a “small” area, it can be considered, from an oenological point of view, a real continent. There are in some respects unique, variabilities of climatic areas, soils, grapes, farming systems, production styles, that make Trentino one of the richest and most complex vineyards to describe and reveal.
A diversity that also characterizes the wine production network which is made up of large cooperatives where the concept “unity is strength” is rooted in the history of the Trentino region, and by small winemakers who with effort and passion enhance the province’s wine identity. We cannot forget the courageous private entrepreneurs who for decades have promoted the name of Trentino wine in all the corners of the planet.
The vineyard area surveyed in 2019 in the province of Trento amounts to 10,211 hectares, and 14% are vines over 500 meters above sea level.
Since the 1980s, the varietal composition of the Trentino viticultural area has constantly and profoundly changed in favor of white varieties, which currently represent 74% of the total area.
