Grown on the plain of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, an area well known for its winemaking expertise, the nature of its soil and its particularly mild climate that all contribute to create ideal conditions for vine growth.
Pinot Grigio evolved from Pinot Nero and, when ripe, the grapes turn a warm coppery colour. For the most part Pinot Grigio is vinified as a white, but thanks to the touch of colour in its skins a blush wine has traditionally been produced in this area for a very long time.
