‘Selida’ is produced with grapes from a selection of vineyards with south-westerly exposure on some of the steepest terraces in the region at 300 to 500 metres above sea level. The climate is characterised by an extreme interplay of sunny days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and cool nights marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains. The significant diurnal temperature variation encourages the development of naturally balancing acidity in the resulting wine. The soil is composed of calciferous loam with gravel and the rocky soils contribute to the mineral character. Guyot training of the vines helps to produce a balanced yield. ‘Selida’ comes from Old High German, meaning ‘small farmstead’, and pays tribute to the longstanding culture of smallholdings that still constitute the strength of Cantina Tramin. The grapes are hand-harvested into small bins to preserve the quality of the fruit.

The grapes were gently pressed after a short period of maceration. Fermentation took place with wild and selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 18°C in small stainless-steel tanks. The wine matured without malolactic conversion in stainless-steel tanks to retain a crisp and fresh style.

Cantina Tramin

Cantina Tramin was founded in 1898 and has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines. The vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy and cover 260 hectares situated on the sunny slopes of the region at altitudes ranging from 250 to 850 metres above sea level.

In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella" award. This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.

Jancis Robinson MW says the following about Cantina Tramin:

"Cantina Tramin is a reliable source (of top quality dry white wines). The sleepy village of Termeno/Tramin, is the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewürztraminer (spiced Traminer) for its heady aroma. Even today Tramin really is very good for Traminer, and has been waking up in response to a discernible fashion for this powerfully scented, full-bodied varietal wine throughout Italy."
