To create our signature varietal, we start with fully ripe Pinot Grigio grapes, harvested from our Alto Adige vineyard in the Italian Alps by hand to ensure that the clusters remain whole and retain their delicate aromas and flavors. The grapes are soft-crushed, then carefully fermented in temperature-controlled tanks. Several additional weeks of aging are then used to fully develop the flavor that made Pinot Grigio famous. Then it’s filtered, bottled and made ready for the most important stop on its journey: the gatherings and glasses of wine lovers like you.
