The Bastianich Family has become known in the USA for their many important Italian Restaurants, several at Michelin star level. Joe Bastianich also became famous with the TV show Master Chef. He is a valued jury member in both Master Chef USA and Italy. Founded in 1997, the Bastianich company consists of 40 hectares of vineyards. The original vineyard in Buttrio/Premariacco is located on the southern hills in the DOC. It is influenced by the warmth of the sea and is famous for the production of great wines. The second property, in Cividale del Friuli, is influenced by the bora, or northerly wind. The wines are by the cooler nights, much more aromatic. Both areas share similar soil, ponca, the crumbly sandstone gives the wines their signature mineral backbone.

Established in 1997, the Bastianich winery strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. We create unique wines that show remarkable strength and balance.

The Pinot Grigio is still regarded as the standard-bearer of Italian white wines abroad, especially for its immediate pleasure and ease of drinking, as well as its versatility in terms of oenological results. This Bastianich Friuli Colli Orientali Pinot Grigio Vini Orsone shows how beautifully this versatile grape thrives in Friuli coming from a chalky terrain. Aromatic, pronounced but all in balance, it moves in style between the most pronounced and aromatic expressions mainly from the north (think Alto Adige or Alsace) and wines with a lower character impact from the lowlands.
This is therefore the secret of the success of this highly sought-after Pinot Grigio from Bastianich: being able to combine an excellent personality with balance and harmony

In the glass, the Pinot Grigio is a beautiful inviting straw yellow color with notes of tropical fruit and pear in the nose, which immediately characterizes it as an Italian Pinot Grigio. In the next layer we smell white flowers and hazelnut. In the mouth, the soft and elegant sensations are fully expressed. Fruity but supported by excellent acidity and freshness and length. This wine is an ideal accompaniment to fish, pasta and legumes. Also excellent with soups.
