    Winemaker Notes

    Light green and straw yellow in color. Rich aromas of pears and apples. Dry and smooth on the palate with a fresh, clean, mineral aftertaste. An excellent bablance gives this wine strength and structure. Aged 5 months in stainless steel tanks, no oak. It goes well with lighter foods shellfish, white fish and vegetable and shrimp tempura.

    Castelfeder , Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
    Image of winery
    The Castelfeder Winery was founded in 1970 by A. Giovanett, who had attended the renowned wine school in San Michele all'Adige and at the founding already had extensive experience as a vintner. The small private winery originally lay in the center of Neumarkt in the south of South Tyrol and processed mainly red grapes of the Lagrein, Pinot Noir and Schiava varieties.

    In 1989 the founder's son, Günther Giovanett (born in 1958), took over the management of the winery and at the same time, the winery was transferred to the small village of Kurtinig in the very south of South Tyrol. Today the Castelfeder Winery is located in the middle of South Tyrol’s southernmost vineyards, where mostly white varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer are grown. The administrative office however is still located in the historical center of Neumarkt. The purchase of new vineyards and close collaboration with the contracted winegrowers offer Günther Giovanett new possibilities of producing great wines through careful selection of the best production areas and well-aimed cultivation of choice varietals; a job he performs with enthusiasm.

    This enthusiasm begins in the vineyard with the planting of the vines, advising and working with the winegrowers and continues through the harvest and gentle pressing of the grapes in the cellar up to the vinification of the wines and finally to their marketing. The result of this difficult but rewarding job is wine to be proud of.

    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.
