Pinot Gris / Grigio

Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio in Italy, is a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape. Low in aromatics, Pinot Gris can range in a variety of styles from dry to sweet. In Alsace, France a Pinot Gris may be rich, full-bodied, richly textured, and high in alcohol. Whereas in Italy, Pinot Grigio may be much lighter with zesty citrus and green fruit flavors. Either way, if you’re looking for an easy white wine to sip on any occasion, Pinot Gris is the way to go!

Alto Adige, Italy

Alto Adige is Italy’s most northerly wine region situated in the foothills of the Alps. It boasts its own DOC (regulated geographical region under Italian Wine Law) labelled Alto Adige DOC. The vineyards here are planted on terraces, most with high altitudes and a large diurnal range making this region prime for aromatic whites and light-bodied red wines. The most notable grape you’ll find here is Pinot Grigio. Traditionally, Pinot Grigio is made in a dry style with a light to medium body, high acid, and citrus flavors. Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Schiava are also grown with this region. 

Griesbauerhof is located on the hills of St. Magdalena and St. Justina in Rentsch, Alto Adige, Italy. The ancestral farm has been in the Mumelter Family since 1785. Here, at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level, the vineyards receive a good amount of sunshine and the sandy clay soil creates complex red wines and extra rich white wines.

“At the Griesbauerhof we know that the quality of wine comes from the vineyard”

They focus on natural and gentle cultivation, acting with careful attention to detail from vine pruning and foliage work to regulation of harvest through early cluster thinning.
