In 1960, 26 winegrowers from Colterenzio in Appiano founded their own cooperative in order to gain their independence from the wine merchants of the time. These rebels named the newly-founded cooperative after their homeland, the small hamlet of Schreckbichl, (Colterenzio in Italian). In their constant pursuit of top quality, the Colterenzio winemakers were also pioneers.
The 300 partner winegrowers of the Colterenzio winary are the backbone of the company. They work year-round on their wine hills with their families in order to supply us with top-quality wine grapes in autumn.
