Still in cork, but in the future… who knows?

posted on 25 February 2015
Thank you very much for participating in our survey. All of your opinions were valuable to us, and we would like to report to you what we have decided regarding screwcaps for our Valtènesi (Groppello) and Riné. In spite of the strong preference by sector professionals in favour of screwcaps, we realize that it is still premature for Cantrina to utilise screwcaps for the larger part of our wines. Most of our customers view Cantrina, in fact, as a winery that produces niche wines, with a limited, but very high-quality portfolio. Despite all of the advantages represented by an alternative closure, as opposed to cork, according to the most widespread way of thinking, for a wine that is considered high quality, and especially for those of very limited production, natural cork is a more appropriate closure. So for Riné 2014 and Groppello 2014 we will continue to use the classic cork closures, … but who knows what the future will bring? For our Rosanoire rosé, however, we are quite happy to use the screwcap! Again, many thanks for your invaluable help! Cristina and Diego

Cantrina Ventennale
On 13 May, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our winery with a vertical tasting showcasing the three wines that, from our founding to the present, have become iconic. We selected the vintages of each that are most representative of the evolution of the blends, production methods, and ageing. The years tasted are: - Riné (1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2013, 2017) - Nepomuceno (1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2011, 2015) - Sole di Dario (1999, 2001, 2006, 2009, 2012)

20th Cantrina's anniversary

For it was in “long-ago” 1999, amidst countless apprehensions, much enthusiasm, and just a pinch of bravado, that we decided to launch “Project Cantrina.” It represented above all the long-time dream of founder Dario Dattoli, who since the early 1990s dedicated himself to producing just handful of bottles—but made with meticulous care!—for his own enjoyment in his numerous restaurants.

Sole di Dario awarded among best … 5 Italian wines

To our great surprise we got 5 bottiglie as the greatest recognition according to Guida de L’Espresso curators.
