Cantina Sociale di Mendrisio

Cantina Sociale di Mendrisio was established in 1949 in a traditional winegrowing region rich in history, art and topographical treasures.
Cantina Sociale di Mendrisio, Ticino's only winemaking cooperative, combines tradition with innovation.
The lush countryside here is blessed with a mild climate that helps the grapes to ripen. The vineyards with their picturesque terraces and rows of vines are a key feature of the landscape, creating a uniquely beautiful panorama. The winery is the only winemaking cooperative in the Canton of Ticino. Its members are predominantly Mendrisiotto winegrowers, although there are also significant contributions from the Riviera and Blenio valleys. Eco-friendly cultivation methods which also preserve the landscape as well as passionate commitment throughout the whole production process have created the local links that are so sought after and important nowadays. In general, the market increasingly favours products whose strengths are local origin and handcrafted quality.
For years now the Mendrisio winemaking cooperative has collaborated with the Changins agricultural centre, testing innovative viticultural techniques which, thanks to a constructive exchange of experience, have resulted in quality improvements that the winery can be proud of. Also of great importance are the maturation trials at the Swiss Federal Research Institute for Fruit Production, Viticulture and Horticulture in Wädenswil, where around 2,000 kg of Merlot grapes are sent each year for processing. The pride of Cantina Sociale di Mendrisio is "Tenuta Montalbano" on the hills of San Pietro di Stabio. The 20-hectare plot with brown moraine-based soil is the cooperative's test laboratory. Here, in a vineyard considered one of the most important in Switzerland, traditions are preserved. The grapes harvested here are used for the eponymous, exclusive and high quality wine collection.
The fine wines from Cantina Sociale Mendrisio have won many prestigious prizes and awards, testament to the excellent results of passionate commitment and in-depth competency.
