The Wine

Born of grapes harvested high in the Italian Alps

Through experience comes knowledge, and almost 700 years of winemaking expertise and an intimate understanding of the region’s unique land, air and water elements make Altanuta a wine of uncommon elegance, craftsmanship and taste.

Located in the Valdadige region, in the northeast corner of Italy near Austria, Altanuta is created from grapes grown on rugged, mountainous slopes that rose from immense upheaval in the earth’s crust millions of years ago. Appropriately, even the wine’s name, Altanuta (alto = high, tenuta = estate), evokes the crisp, refreshing mountain breezes and remote terrain of its birthplace.

It is the combination of high altitude air, soil composition and close proximity to the sun’s rays that gives Altanuta Pinot Grigio its distinguished character memorable flavor to be savored with food, yet light enough to be enjoyed as an aperitif.

Altanuta: Truly the highest expression of Pinot Grigio.
