Pinot Grigio (known as Ruländer or Grauburgunder in German) has been at home in Alto Adige since the nineteenth century. The first “Pinot Gris” was introduced from Burgundy by Archduke Johann of Austria in 1852. In lower areas around Kurtatsch, the Pinot Grigio develops a mild acidity, while the high alcohol and extract content contribute to strength and flavor. The Pinot Grigio gets fine mineral-rich spice that takes on a fiery varietal perfume of gooseberries, lime-tree flowers and acacia blossoms from the lime-rich soils of the fantastically steep slopes of Kurtatsch-Penon. The blending of mountain and valley grapes creates an extraordinary Pinot Grigio, with the total class and creamy suppleness of the south and the seriousness on the palate of the north.

The Pinot gris vineyards are situated at low (220 m) and high (650 m) altitudes alike. The subsoil is calcareous, and has a high percentage of gravel. Here, Pinot gris unites the potency and extract content found in the valley with the elegant freshness and minerality of the mountains.
