Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.

The Cantina Produttori Bolzano Estate represents the joint efforts of two of Alto Adige’s most historic wineries—Santa Magdalena, established 1930, and Cantina Gries, established in 1908. The vineyard elevations range from 200 to 700 meters above sea level. Huck am Bach Hof, where is wine is produced in St. Magdalena is 250 meters above sea level. This is an exciting estate that makes some of the most exciting Lagrein from the area, and some of the most exceptional reds in Italy.
The Alpine region of Trentino-Alto Adige is comprised of two separate areas. Trento refers to the southern part and Alto Adige identifies the northern territory which includes the higher (alto) part of the Adige River.
The river carves a major north-south valley leading in the north to the Brenner Pass, a major passing point over the Alpine landscape. Picturesque and full of steep, sloping hills, each one planted to the full with vineyards. While a host of indigenous varietals are still crafted into delicious wine, many international varieties are gaining valuable real estate with fantastic results in the vineyards of the region.
Populated since the Bronze Age, Trentino-Alto Adige became part of the Roman Empire in the 1st century B.C. Roman colonization, of course, brought about the construction of roads, cities, aqueducts and canals, and Roman law called for distribution of land to locals for cultivation.
After the fall of the empire, the area underwent the same fate as much of Italy. Subsequent waves of invaders occupied the region causing a centuries long period of economic and societal stagnation. In the Middle Ages the current ethno-cultural mix composed of mostly Italian and Germanic people was formed. In fact, the region enjoys a special autonomous status and its inhabitants are bi-lingual.
