Maze Row Wine Merchant Grows Portfolio in the U.S. with the Addition of Alto Adige’s Cantina Girlan 


Healdsburg, Calif., February 22, 2024 – Maze Row Wine Merchant announced today  that it has been appointed the exclusive U.S. importer of Alto Adige’s Girlan, effective  immediately. Founded in 1923, Cantina Girlan is a revered producer of terroir-focused  Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Today, Cantina Girlan is comprised of 200 deeply  committed winegrowers and their families, farming an area covering approximately  220 hectares of vineyards in the best wine-producing areas of the Alto Adige. Girlan  joins a portfolio of esteemed wineries from Italy, Spain, New Zealand, and California’s Central Coast. 

“We are excited to expand our portfolio to include Girlan,” said Joseph C. Gallo,  Founder of Maze Row Wine Merchant. “Girlan has just celebrated its 100th  anniversary. It is an honor to represent them in the United States. Their wines truly reflect the character and traditions of high elevation viticulture in Alto Adige. We  welcome Girlan to the Maze Row community.” 

Girlan is known for its award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Girlan’s  hillside vineyards overlook the city of Bolzano, with elevations ranging from 450 to  550 meters. All the Girlan grapes are hand-harvested in alignment with a precise  harvest calendar and are gently processed according to their quality, variety, and  origin. In 2010, the winery underwent an extensive modernizing project, transforming  into a state-of-the-art winemaking facility.  

From the Girlan portfolio, Maze Row will import Trattmann Pinot Noir Riserva, Patricia Pinot Noir, Marna Chardonnay, Indra Sauvignon, and from the Classici tier, Pinot  Grigio and Chardonnay. Girlan wines will be available in select markets across the U.S.  beginning May 1.
