The terrain of the Cantina La-Vis vineyards is a complex jumble of hills, hollows and steep slopes.

Various grape varieties are cultivated on small plots of land. The traditional pergola system is used, supplemented by the espalier system.

Lying at altitudes of 200 to 800 metres, the vineyards are the source of variety and rich sensory experiences, with delicate white grapes growing on the upper slopes and robust, full-bodied reds at lower levels.

The vineyards grow 80% white grapes, among which Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Müller Thurgau prevail. The red grapes include Schiava, Pinot Nero, Merlot, Teroldego and Lagrein. The production area is comprised of vineyards located in Trentino and extending from the hills of Lavis, Sorni and Meano, with the characteristic terracing of the Valle di Cembra up to Isera in Vallagarina, as well as some plots of land in South Tyrol.

Each of our wine-growers must be fully aware of the context of the area where they grow, the factors that make it unique and best-suited to one variety or another, with the intention of producing wines that are an expression of their terroir of origin.

Decisions about which varieties to grow, and on which plots, are based on the zoning project that was launched in the mid-eighties and is the key to La Vis wine quality. This project, summed up by the slogan “the right vine in the right place”, has made it possible to identify the best vine for each terrain based on a detailed study of the particular soil characteristics.
Their marked cooperation with our strongly motivated social base has given rise to important and generous wines which fully express themselves in an impervious and difficult territory.

One important aspect within this base is the Soil Map, a document stating the characteristics of the soil for which each terroir is distinguished.
The area map then uses different colours to outline the areas with the same mineralogical composition.
