CLASSIC RANGE

Lafóa: from a pilot vineyard to excellent wines
Lafóa is a byword for the beginning of the Alto Adige quality initiative and the pioneering work of the Cantina Colterenzio in the 1980s. At the time, the wine pioneer Luis Raifer not only planted new grape varieties on his vineyard named Lafóa, but at the same time introduced new quality standards: less yield for better grapes and better wines. It was exactly on this pilot vineyard that the “Lafóa idea” was born: the introduction of new quality standards that until this very day meet with the winegrowers and staff of Cantina Colterenzio. Lafóa stands for full-bodied white and red wines that are nonetheless very elegant and have great aging potential.        

THE WINE

Alto Adige Gewürztraminer 'Lafòa' Range by Colterenzio is the flagship of the company. Excellent white that comes from grapes grown on calcareous soils, enriched by clayey deposits. The gewürztraminer finds its ideal habitat here, expressing great freshness and typicality of the area as well as a high aging potential.

THE COMPANY

The wines from the hamlet of Colterenzio were favourites of Archduke Sigismund when he resided at Firmiano Castle in the 15th century, though the area was producing fine wines much earlier. Around 15 b.C. a Roman country gentleman named Cornelius settled here and established his "Cornelianum" wine estate and the first wine culture in the area. The Roman name eventually evolved into "Cornaiano", the village Colterenzio calls home. The Colterenzio winegrowers' co-operative was founded by 28 vintners in 1960. Over the years other passionate viticulturalists from diversified micro-zones in the area joined the collective, and today nearly 300 members cultivate approximately 300 hectares of vineyards.
