    Lagaria, Veneto, Italy
    Image of winery
    This delightful range, created by Neil and Maria Empson, is produced in the Trentino region under the geographic denomination of "delle Venezie".

    The appellation's green, rolling hills, at the feet of the imposing Dolomitic mountain range in northeastern Italy, are ideally situated for viticulture. The cool temperatures and night/day, winter/summer temperature extremes, endow local wines, both red and white, with a particular freshness and a strong backbone of acidity. Because of Trentino's historical position as a crossroads between Italy and the German and Eastern European cultures, grape varieties are diverse, and comprise both the indigenous and the international.

    Lagaria was named after the region's stunning Val Lagarina: a kaleidoscope of color and light crowned by the severe peaks of the Dolomites. This beautiful natural setting was also the inspiration for the exclusive label, specially designed by Maria Gemma Empson.

    All three wines are 100% varietals from vineyards ranging in altitude from 250 to 500 meters above sea level. The fine terrain and exposure, together with state-of-the-art equipment and classic vinification, are conducive to exemplary, yet appealingly accessible varietals.

    In fact, the Empsons' objective in creating Lagaria, was to offer customers a price-conscious product that did not allow for any compromise in terms of quality - in other words, simply unbelievable value for money.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine.

    The sub-region of Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of Veneto’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Recioto and Amarone follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing, resulting in wines that are intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral.

    Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, apricot, or yellow peach, have smoky and exotic aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

    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.
