    Winemaker Notes

    Pinot Grigio comes from an ancient vine originally cultivated in Alsace and grown today on the hillsides in Lavis, Gardolo and Trento.

    Delicately perfumed with scents of flowers and spice, it features almond, tangerine and apricot fruits. Softly textured and balanced with a crisp citrus finish.

    A delicious aperitif or pair with seafood and salads.

    La Vis, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
    2005 Pinot Grigio
    Officially established in 1948, Cantina La Vis is located in a village that shares its name, in the heart of the Avisiane hills. The 1980 Progetto Zonazione (Zoning Project), whose motto was "the right vine at the right place," was the foundation for the quality of La Vis wines. Studies and research under the "Progetto Qualità, linked to the zoning project, have led La Vis agronomists and oenologists to identify outstanding vineyards, their wines becoming part of the Autoctoni, Ritratti and Bio lines, the company’s high-end labels.

    The Autoctoni line satisfies the need to bring high-quality Trentino wines to the market, with grapes that really exalt the genius loci. This is the case with the gentle Sette Fontane Nosiola, the subtle Piaggi Schiava, the strong Rover Terodego, the surprising L’Altro Manzoni Maso Franch Incrocio Manzoni, the elegant Lagrein Greggi, and the high mineral Cadrobbi Müller Thurgau.

    The richness and variety of the land has also meant international varieties have found a preferred location in the Trentino area over the past century. The Ritratti line is grown in locations of the highest prestige, proposing the fine Del Diaol Chardonnay, the fragrant Maso Clinga Gewürztraminer, the aromatic Maso Tratta Sauvignon, the intense Cabernet Sauvignon, the enveloping Pinot Noir or the wonderfully refreshing Pinot Grigio.

    Ever true to their respect of the land, some members have chosen to embrace the Bio (organic) cause, thus leading to the creation of the award-winning Ai Padri Gewürztraminer, the complex Manci Chardonnay, the elegant Arcadia Pinot Grigio and the fragrant and fruity Nailam Marzemino wines, all grown on the Trento hills.

    The range is completed by the Simboli line, created to satisfy the requests of wine lovers who like their food at restaurants to be accompanied by excellent wines, everyday, and the Storie di Vite line. Although maintaining the pleasant and authentic character of Trentino wines, these two lines are specifically targeted at the modern market, reflecting an offer that is becoming increasingly popular with families.

    Last but not least, the two new LA VIS sparkling wines, the 100% white Chardonnay and the Rosé (Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes), are also highly appreciated.

    Trentino-Alto Adige

    View all wine

    A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino. Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of large volumes of wine made from non-native grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio produced here, and Merlot is common as well.

    The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) is more focused on smaller-scale viticulture, and greater value is placed on local varieties, though international varieties are widely planted as well. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, and others. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot Grigio in Italy is made here.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
