The winery is located in the north of Puglia, on the heights that surround the legendary Tavoliere. This is our strong and ancient area. The third-largest agro in Italy, where everything is still dictated by agricultural times. Here the land is closer to the sea than to the earth and where only few km divide the grapes from the sea water. Soils, of medium texture, are rich in limestone since all the Tavoliere area was once submerged by water, and this now defines the beautiful mild climate profile, as witnessed in the surrounding territory between the Gravina and Gargano area, which appear very rich in terms of variety of flora and fauna also thanks to the important role played by nature.
One of the world’s most popular white wine grapes, Pinot Grigio is also known as Pinot Gris. The name means “gray” Pinot in Italian or French, respectively, and refers to the pinkish-ash hue of the berries, which mutated in France from the red grape Pinot Noir.
Both Italy and France produce the variety, notably in Northern Italy and Alsace, France. Due to its popularity and versatility, the grape has spread around the world to areas that include California, Oregon, Australia and New Zealand.
Pinot Grigio is one of the world’s most popular grapes precisely because it’s capable of a range of styles and flavors, depending on where it’s grown and the winemaker’s vision. Its wines can refresh on a hot day with their light and zesty lemon character, or they can complement food when voluptuous and concentrated.
In Italy, Pinot Grigio grows everywhere, but it flourishes in the north. The cooler climate around mountainous Alto Adige, and to a lesser extent, Friuli Venezia Giulia and the Veneto, produces lean, bright and focused wines with citrus and mineral characteristics. Many are meant to enjoy in their youth.
