Winemaker Notes

Bright yellow in color with coppery reflections and clear fruit aromas of pear, citrus, honeysuckle, tropical fruits and light spices. Firm, velvety and rich on the palate, with well-integrated acidity. A very round and satisfying wine. Recommended with fish antipasti, risotto with asparagus, omelets and pasta

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Grigio comes across as rather lean, focused and energetic. This isn't an easygoing Pinot Grigio, but rather a wine built on a core of serious minerality. Crushed rocks, lime and mint linger on the precise, crystalline finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.

Tramin, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
2009 Pinot Grigio
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.

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.
