THE WINE
Pinot Grigio is Villa Puccini's only venture outside of Tuscany. The grapes are from hillside vineyards in northeastern Italy, both in Veneto and Friuli, not far from the Tagliamento River. Organic practices are used in the fields. Villa Puccini is 100% Pinot Grigio, cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. It is bottled young to be enjoyed with seafood or poultry preparations. Villa Puccini Pinot Grigio has a persistent taste reminiscent of much more expensive wines. It is the perfect white counterpoint to Villa Puccini Tuscan Red.

THE VINE
Pinot Grigio is a red varietal, most famous for producing white wines. It grows throughout northern and central Italy and does very well at high altitudes. It is called Pinot Gris in France, Tokay D’Alsace in Alsace and Rulander in Germany. In the Loire, it is known as Malvoise and Pinot Belrot. Planted in Oregon, New Zealand, California and Russia, this vine is revered in Hungary as the Szurkebarat.
