The history of Aldenese wine-growing can be traced back over to several centuries ago, when along the streets of this small Trentino town walked men who transformed their love for the land into some of the best wines in the region. In those days not much was needed: a piece of land, passion and patience.
Cultivation techniques were refined during the Nineteenth century and the hills surrounding the town gradually began to be covered by pergola trellises, while on the valley floor, after the new course of the River Adige, the “cesure” marked the boundaries of those vines of particular quality which were flanked by new sandy and fertile terrains.
A few years later a second cooperative was established: the Unione Vinicola Aldeno (Aldeno Wine-growing Union). The history of these two cooperatives will accompany the life of the Aldeno community and town for over half a century, until, in 1972 Cantina Sociale di Aldeno and Unione Vinicola Aldeno were fused into the Cantina Aldeno of today, which was established with the aim of keeping the traditional union of Aldeno and the grape alive.
