“Alto Adige All-star • Among the finest Italian whites!”

"Vorberg seems to be fighting to compete with the best whites of Burgundy." Eric Guido, Vinous

By David Gettenberg

For years, critics have written that Alto Adige in northern Italy is home to some of the finest Italian whites.

"Having recently blind-tasted the white wines of Cantina Terlano... I have no doubt that this is the case." James Suckling

Vintage after vintage, there is consensus. "If I were stranded on a deserted island with just one bottle of wine of my choosing, it very well might be Terlano's Vorberg [2018]." Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

The 2019 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg has an exotic flair... silky and deeply textural, washing creamy waves of ripe orchard fruits across the palate, while leaving saline-minerals that create a more tactile feel. There are depths yet unseen here, as the 2019 comes across as densely packed and layered, yet with perfect balance and a tart citrus reverberation that adds energy. It finishes long and lightly structured, leaving the palate completely refreshed... I tasted the Vorberg from a freshly opened bottle and one that had been opened for two days without any sign of decline..." Vinous

You will love how this gorgeous, versatile white wine complements your food - from seafood to pasta.  There is a Burgundian charm to it with its crushed sea shells and Loire Valley chalkiness.  

At 1,000 feet above sea level, the high elevation and rocky soil impart vibrancy to this gorgeous Italian white.  Their Krueth Chardonnay, here, is also out of this world!

An excellent companion to alpine cheeses, antipasti, and grilled vegetables, it is also a fantastic companion to pasta with garlic and olive oil as well as grilled halibut or bronzino.

By the way, this wine is age-worthy too - and just plain yummy!

Enjoy!

“White flowers, crushed pears and hints of sweet spice.”

Vinous • 95 / 100

"The 2019 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg has an exotic flair, blending rich notes of vanilla custard with white flowers, crushed pears and hints of sweet spice. It’s silky and deeply textural, washing creamy waves of ripe orchard fruits across the palate, while leaving saline-minerals that create a more tactile feel. There are depths yet unseen here, as the 2019 comes across as densely packed and layered, yet with perfect balance and a tart citrus reverberation that adds energy. It finishes long and lightly structured, leaving the palate completely refreshed. This is just a baby today, yet it is full of potential. I tasted the Vorberg from a freshly opened bottle and one that had been opened for two days without any sign of decline"
