Kornayyano vineyards lie on the gentle hills, "polished" runs in the valley of the Adige glaciers back in the Ice Age. In the XV century Archbishop Sigismund built in the current commune Kolterentsio majestic castle, now almost destroyed, but preserved on the labels of wines Colterenzio. Archbishop above all appreciated the wine very Kornayyano and contributed to the development of vineyards, although the wine is made, of course, since the days of the Romans. According to legend, 15 BC, almost immediately after the area was occupied by the advance units of the Romans, a citizen Cornelius built a winery Kornelianum (Cornelianum) - hence the name of the village, and the brand one of the top lines of wines Kolterentsio - Cornell .
The name of the cooperative Kolterentsio comes from the village near Kolterentsio Girlana. Here is one of Europe's oldest vineyards planted by the Romans. Kolterentsio cooperative was founded in 1960, when 28 local farmers decided to join forces. Today, the cooperative has already involved more than 290 winemakers, which owns about 300 hectares of vineyards. As you know, the wine region of Trentino-Alto Adige has preferred Archduke Sigismund, who lived in the castle Firmian in the XV century, although there are still more earliest evidence of winemaking practices relating to the XV century BC According to manufacturers, such a long tradition imposes certain obligations - in their case it is necessary to be able to take bold decisions.
