The Cantina d’Isera is a cooperative winery founded in 1907, at the time of the Habsburg Empire. Founded by the will of the area’s winegrowers, it already harvested the prized grapes of Isera’s basalt hills. Always dedicated to the production of Marzemino di Isera, the symbolic wine of the area that has found its ideal habitat in the dark basalt soil of Isera, since 2004 the Cantina di Isera has also enthusiastically dedicated itself to the production of Trento Doc in the Brut, Brut Riserva and Extra Brut versions.
