Fresh and floral in style with an appealing citrus flavour bursting with aromas of spring flowers and orchard fruits. From the alpine hillsides of the cool Trentino Valley, arguably the home of classically styled Italian Pinot Grigio. Perfect for drinking on its own or with white fish and salads.

This pretty Alpine region of Italy revolves around the production of bread and wine and the belief that both are key to physical and emotional nourishment. Situated in the very north east of the country, bordering Veneto and Lombardy, and with Alto Adige to its north, Trentino sits at high altitude and has an overall cool climate affected by the Alps and Mediterranean.

Trentino is similar to Aldo Adige in that it is has DOC status and its viticulture has clear Austrian and German influences due to its geopolitical history. An interesting variety of red and white grapes are grown within the Trentino DOC including Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, Marzemino, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Carmenere.

In terms of white wine, Trentino’s Müller-Thurgau is of particular note and when it comes to red, Marzemino is the area’s highlight.
