Young and visionary. Since 2001, the year of the establishment of the Cantina Bolzano, a South Tyrolean winery based on strong traditions, we have emphasized wines of selected quality and regional character. We offer our customers a wide range of first-class, award-winning wines. Using the latest cellaring techniques, know-how, decades of experimenting in perfection and great affection for our products, our aim is to meet the highest quality standards and thus to make first-class wines that are unique and distinctive. Our passion and devotion allows us to create rich, inimitable, yet at the same time modern products whose taste always reflects their origins. In 1908, 30 wine growers in Gries decided to form a wine cooperative. Evidently their aim, to vinify and market the indigenous South Tyrolean Lagrein grape – was quickly achieved. After the Second World War, the Gries winery successfully established itself on the German market with its Lagrein Kretzer wine. Despite the turbulence caused by the difficult years of the 1970's and 1980's, the winery managed to increase sales of its flagship Lagrein product and consolidate market share by switching the emphasis from quantity to quality.
