20th Cantrina's anniversary

posted on 18 February 2019
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. So here we are at our 20th ANNIVERSARY of managing this winery, the 20th milestone from our foundation, years that you, our friends and customers, have followed so well with us. Yes, a lot has changed over the course of those 20 years! We started out by spreading into the spaces under the house, then finally succeeded in building our new cellar in 2004, which has been made even more efficient and functional over recent years. The vineyards, too, saw their own changes: the varietal mix was significantly altered, and vineyard practices improved, so that here we are today with a full eight hectares in organic viticulture.And you noticed that our wines evolved as well, with our 1999 “first child” Riné-Nepomuceno-Sole di Dario si sono via via aggiunti lo Zerdì, il Groppello, alias Valtenesi e il Rosanoire.

Riné

We’d like to talk to you a bit about our Riné. Although it has changed over the years, we conceived Cantrina’s white wine--our distinctive blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, and a bit of other white varieties we grow here in our estate vineyards--as one that would evolve and mature with cellaring, offering its best even many years after bottling. We noticed, though, in the few years, that we were often forced to sell Riné too soon, and thus offering our customers a wine that was still inexpressive and therefore not fully appreciated for what it really was.
