About This Wine
Winemaking has taken place in Italy for centuries.
But it wasn’t until 1905, with the founding of Azienda Vinicola Lechthaler, that a winery in the Trentino-Alto Adige region began to market estate-bottled, premium wines for both the domestic market and for export. The present owner is the Togn family, which continues to uphold long-established winemaking traditions, and crafts the wine known as Torre di Luna.
Each harvest season, the Togns select the best grapes from the vine-covered rolling hills north of Trento. The size of the Azienda permits the utilization of traditional winemaking methods, supported by technologically advanced modern equipment. It’s a combination that guarantees quality in every bottle of Torre di Luna Pinot Grigio.
The 2010 vintage produced a wine that’s absolutely perfect for serving alongside almost any food from the sea, from simple grilled fish to boiled clams, and from mussels to squid. The wine is light, delicate and delicious. Welcome to America!

In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.
