Pinot Grigio from Alto Adige is world famous and Franz Haas makes one of the best. Refreshing, but also aromatic with acacia honey, sage and almonds in the taste. An exciting Pinot Grigio. The Pinot Grigio vineyards are located in Montagna at an altitude of 350-750 meters above sea level. They are oriented south - southwest. The rich soil contains a multitude of clay and loam. Fermentation is 80% in stainless steel vats and 20% in oak barrels. The wine matures for 4 months on its lees and then another 3 months in bottle before hitting the market. The color is an intense straw yellow. The nose is striking with many floral accents, mainly acacia blossoms. We also have sage, hay and sandalwood in addition to the almonds and the beautiful white and yellow tree fruit. After some maturation, lime blossom and honey appear. It is an extremely finesse and elegant wine with the required freshness and richness. Moreover, the whole remains beautifully present in the mouth for a long time. Franz Haas has an incredible height difference in his vineyards starting from 220 meters above sea level (where Lagrein is planted) to a whopping 1150 meters altitude (where Pinot Nero is planted). These are some of the highest vineyards in Alto Adige.


Founded in 1880, the Franz Haas winery is located in the beautiful Alto-Adige area on the border of Austria and Italy. Since then, the company has been working on the road for seven generations. The winery was always passed down to sons of the same name, Franz. In the 1980s, most of the vineyards were renewed, creating space for new varieties that better suit the type of “terroir” of the region.

The grapes come from 55 hectares of vineyards. The vineyards start at an altitude of 220 meters, rising to 1,150 meters. There is a wide variety of microclimates and soils, from clay to limestone. The vineyards are among the highest vineyards in Alto Adige.

The choice of planting vines at these altitudes has proven that optimal and aromatic wines can be produced with a nice acidity. Large temperature differences between day and night and an enormous attention to the vineyards have also helped.
