Pinot Grigio

Amiably tolerant of great variations in growing season conditions, Pinot Grigio is always at the forefront of drinkability and food friendliness in our range of white wines. It is harvested promptly when ripe, to conserve its structuring acidity, and fermented and aged in stainless steel with scrupulous protetion from oxygen. A deceptively simplified palate is backed by alluring tropical notes, suggestions of salinity and ample mouth feel.

We were fortunate to enjoy a fine growing season in 2017. This 20th consecutive harvest under our viticulturist Fernando Franco rewarded us with a beautiful crop. The season started with an early bud-break followed by ideal gentle Spring rains, which supported a good bloom for the clusters. The early Summer was warm, although never becoming hot, and the grapes ripened with good speed. We started harvesting in perfect conditions with Moscato on August 8th, and finished on October 8th with Cabernet Sauvignon. All varietals showed great character, making this harvest reminiscent in style to 2007 and 2014, among the best we have experienced.
