For decades, the Terlato family has been known for their relentless pursuit of quality, introducing Pinot Grigio to the United States and establishing the varietal as a key category. Several years ago, they decided to elevate and reinvigorate the category by producing their own distinctive, high-quality Pinot Grigio in Italy.

After several years of blind tastings, the Terlato family chose highly regarded viticulturalists, Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch, to develop a Pinot Grigio from Friuil, the powerhouse appellation of Italian white wines. Estate-bottled for consistency, the fruit is secured from an important viticultural area where the grapes are grown on low-yield hillside vines and are hand-harvested.  The result is a wine that is rich, aromatic, super clean, and full bodied with a good fruity core, lovely floral aromas, and delicate peach, almond, and green apple flavors. This carefully chosen, meticulously crafted Pinot Grigio is a pinnacle of excellence within the category, and redefines the varietal as a full, flavorful, aromatic wine for luxury consumers.
