Tasting Notes

Weissburgunder is more commonly known outside of the Alto-Adige as Pinot Blanc. This comes from younger vines planted in chalk, quartz and volcanic-based soils in the southern Isarco Valley. Luscious on the palate, medium-bodied and fermented and aged in steel tanks. Unoaked.

Staff Pick Notes

Who wants to drink a pinot bianco with a sassy attitude? I certainly do, but maybe that's because I have one, too. Hailing from the Isarco Valley, just below the Austrian border, this region is known for its almost exclusive production of white grape varieties. High altitude, mild and sunny summer days, cool nights, and protection offered by the mountains from more intense weather create an ideal climate for making wines with lots of character, and this is no exception. This cheeky bottle packs a punch with loads of green apple, lemon, lime and a perfumed finish that really sticks around. Audacious pairing opportunities abound so snag a bottle and try it with sautéed greens, roasted delicata squash, sashimi or salads with fresh fruit and roasted nuts.
