About This Wine

Pinot Grigio is the first thing most Americans think of when the subject turns to “Italian white wines.”

Most of Italy’s great Pinot Grigio comes from Delle Venezie, which comprises the entire regions of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and Veneto, plus the entire province of Trento in Trentino–Alto Adige.

The region is situated in northeast Italy, bordering Slovenia and Austria, protected by tall mountains as it overlooks the Adriatic Sea. There, a mild climate and the right types of soils combine to provide the ideal conditions for producing elegant and fruitful wines.

Friuli-Venezia-Giulia is a particularly welcoming region for Pinot Grigio, where it’s known for being fruitful, flavorful and refreshing. Italians pick the fruit early as it has a tendency to drop acidity when allowed to ripen fully. Viaggiatore’s 2015 vintage is very light and crisp, with a little bit of sweetness and then a touch of tangy tartness.

About Pinot Grigio

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.
