Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Grigio is part of the Burgundian Pinot family and is related to Pinot Bianco and the principal grape of Pinot family, Pinot Noir. In France this grape is called Pinot Gris and in Germany Ruländer. Pinot Grigio is a white wine with full, rich extract and is pale yellow in color. Its flavor is delicate and pleasantly soft with lasting notes of nuts and honey.

This wine pairs well with dishes based on mushrooms, fish and seafood. Recommended as an aperitif.

About Tramin:

Frequently called "Europe's most beautiful wine growing region," Alto Adige is home to traditions that extend back to the days of the Roman Empire. Tramin is one of the oldest wineries in Alto Adige, and among the richest in tradition. In 1898, Pastor Christian Schrott founded the winery in the heart of the Termeno region on the south side of the Alps. Today, the Tramin numbers 290 members who raise grapes on a total of approximately 575 acres in the communities of Tramin, Neumarkt, Montan, and Auer. Tramin’s winemaker, Willi Stürz, was named "winemaker of the Year" in 2004 by Italy's most important wine publication, Gambero Rosso.
