Winery of the Month – AUGUST 2019
Schreckbichl Colterenzio Winery

Schreckbichl Colterenzio is located in the town of Cornaiano, which derives its name from the Latin cornelianum or the estate of Cornelius.  Cornelius was a Roman settler who started a wine property here in 15 B.C.E..  In 1960, when 28 vintners got together to form a collective, Colterenzio was born.  Over the years many other growers have joined which brings the total today to 300 with around 300 hectares under vine.  The vineyards are placed in the best areas of Alto Adige with all of the vineyards between 750 and 1700 feet above sea level.  Today the members use sustainable farming practices including cover crops, only organic compost, and careful pruning to name a few.  The vineyards are not the only place where this commitment to the environment takes place.  The winery now produces 55% of the energy that it consumes and 70% of the hot water they use.

The grapes are handpicked and delivered to the winery in small baskets.  The grapes are destemmed and then sent to different areas of the winery depending on their color.  The entire winery is gravity fed which means that every step in the winemaking process is directly below the last.  This lowers the costs of production but really allows for more control over the resulting product by cutting out all the machine pumping.  During most of the fermentation process, the wine is kept under nitrogen to preserve the aromatic flavors and prevent early spoilage.  All of this together produces some wonderful wines.

Pinot Grigio

This is a classic Pinot, medium to light bodied with crisp acidity, which displays peach and honeydew melon flavors.  The wine pairs well with salads and lightly prepared fish.
Regularly $19.99    Sale $14.99

Chardonnay

Here is a great example of what Chardonnay can do outside of Burgundy and California.  Medium weight with tons of apple and tropical fruit flavors.  A light creamy texture from the lees aging and a refreshing acidity cleans everything up.  This chard goes well with fish on citrus or butter sauces as well as vegetable or seafood risotto.
Regularly $19.99   Sale $14.99

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is another Burgundian grape transplanted to Alto Adige.  A light bodied red wine that produces flavors of currants and red berries.  There is a light baking spice note that adds some complexity to the wine.  It pairs well with white meat dishes and especially well with mushroom risotto.
Regularly $22.99   Sale $17.99

Kalterersee

This wine is all Alto Adige.  The grape is Schiava which is known locally as Vernatsch and in Germany as Trollinger.  It produces fresh light bodied red wines with red berry flavors, good acidity, and maybe a little rose water.  All and all a very interesting red that should be more popular, especially in the summer.
Regularly $15.99  Sale $11.99

03-17-2020 Dear Italian Market Supporters,
With the trepidation surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus we wanted to inform you of the extra precautions that have been implemented.  All our food preparation areas are normally cleaned and sanitized at the beginning and end of every shift. We have increased this to hourly.  This hourly cleaning and food grade sanitizing regime will incorporate all surfaces that our guests can encounter.

  • This will include all self-service counters, ordering and receiving counters, bathroom facilities, door handles, push plates and any other area that I am failing to remember at this moment.
  • The tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitized after every use.
  • All our cleaning and sanitizing agents are food service grade.

For those who would like a bit more distance than the recommended 6 feet of space between people, we offer a drive thru pick-up window. You can give us a call and drive by for pick up.  We go above the necessary not because of any regulations but because of family. This restaurant is a family establishment. It reflects the idea of family that the Lubrano’s hold. On any given day, you can come in and likely run into a family member dining here. These ideas extend beyond the immediate. They extend to the staff, many of which have been with the family for more than 7 years. They also extend to you, our guests. We want to make you feel as though you are with family every time you are here.

From our family to yours, stay safe and take care of one another.
