How we made this wine
If you travel westwards from Venice, you will soon enter a landscape of green hills covered with vines. At some of the highest parts, you may spot the ruins of old castles. A proof of that Veneto has since long been an important and powerful region. Not the least for growing and trading with wines. Cool winds from the Alps meet with mild air currents from lake Garda. These incessant breezes dries any humidity out of the vineyards and makes it easy to grow with organic methods.
Pinot Grigio shares it’s family tree with Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. It is in fact the same grape variety as Pinot Gris, as it is called in France. You will always recognize a Pinot Grigio from Veneto by its refreshing acidity and aromas of pear and ripe citrus fruits. Our vineyards were planted around 25 years ago at selected parcels rich in limestone.
In late August when the soft sun sets over the Venetian hillsides, it is harvest time. We pick the grapes with great care as quickly as we can. In order to ensure that healthy and unbroken grapes arrive to the winery. After a gentle pressing, the fermentation can start. Always at a low temperature, always in tanks of stainless steel. We have learnt that these techniques are the best way to bring you the fruity and crisp aromas true to a Venetian Pinot Grigio.
