Vineyard Info

In 1996, at an age when most people are thinking of retiring, the 3 Canepa sisters, - Gilda, Edda and Antonieta-, responding to their passion for the production of fine wines which has been part of their family’s life since the 1930’s, decided to link their well established vineyard holdings to a state-of-the art, brand new winery. TerraMater was born from exceptional lands, covered by vines that are up to 70 years old, and marvelous olive groves over 50 years old, which produce the very best quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You can also find apple orchards.

Our grapes are carefully selected from vineyards planted in teh Casablanca Valley.
