Pinot Grigio

White wine

  • Harvest and Vinification Notes

    Grapes for our wine come from the Veneto region of Italy, where the Pinot Grigio grape has been cultivated for more than a century. The juice is fermented for three weeks in temperature-controlled tanks. After settling, the wine is cold stabilized, filtered, and bottled under sterilized conditions, avoiding malolactic fermentation and preserving the fruit characteristics of the wine. The wine is aged two months on light lees to preserve freshness.

  • Tasting Notes

    A dry wine of great character and versatility. It is characterized by a clean, intense aroma and a pleasant golden apple finish. It is wonderfully fresh and well-balanced on the palate with a long finish.

Veneto

THE REGION

The Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice.
Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity.
From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
