The Pinot Grigio grape variety, also known as Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris, is currently the most widely grown white wine variety in Alto Adige. The places subject to Mediterranean influences around Magrè and Salorno have predominantly calcareous soils with a high sand and gravel content and are perfect for cultivating this grape variety of the noble Pinot family.

This Pinot Grigio is produced by the Italian winery Alois Lageder located in the Trentino wine region. The winery in Alto Adige has some 50 hectares of its own vineyards, which are managed on the basis of biodynamic principles. The holistic approach of this winery is reflected in its wine-growing activities, its long-standing relationships with numerous grape growers and their ambition to create awareness for an agriculture in tune with nature. "We are not winemakers" says Alois Lageder, descendant of a family that has been passionate about wine for 4 generations. 'We see our role more as that of a midwife, coach and teacher. Our task is to accompany the grapes in good health and with the utmost care and to encourage the successful development of our wines in all respects.

The Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio is bright straw yellow in color with a light golden sheen. On the nose there are powerful, lively and pronounced aromas of flowers, exotic spices, fruits (peach, melon) and minerals. The wine has a full, rich taste. Fruity, spicy, fresh, slightly smoky. Medium body. Vinification: fermentation in stainless steel vats, aged for 4 months on its own fine sediment.

Wonderful wine with starters with (white) meat or fish and delicious with dishes with shellfish, sea fish, pâtés and terrines, poultry, white meat and mushrooms.
