Trentino-Alto Adige is in the north section of Italy, bordering the Austrian and Swiss Alps. It is comprised of two autonomous provinces: Trentino lies to the south, with its capital Trento. This is the culturally Italian portion of the region. Alto Adige in the north, some call it Sudtirol, is mostly German-speaking, long considered part of Austria. Its main city is Bolzano. 
 
The area dates back to the Bronze Age, first inhabited by the Celts, then the Etruscans. The Romans took it over in the 1st century AD. After the fall of the Roman empire, it suffered much of the same fate as other parts of the country as the target of violent invading factions such as the Visigoths. This bi-cultural blend of Italian and German began in the Middle Ages. By the end of World War II, the industrial revolution elevated the region’s infrastructure and economy. The Alto Adige became a popular tourist resort destination, bringing with it, a global appreciation of the region’s wines Read more »

  • Davinci Pinot Grigio 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light on the nose but a hint of ripe pears. Heavier texture than expected. Ripe fruit with good acidity and just a touch of bitterness on the rather short finish. Food wine. Read More

    Wine review by ALICEPEARL


  • Kris Pinot Grigio 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Clean and crisp aromas of green apple, lemon and pear. Quite tart flavors here, holding just enough acidity to keep it fresh and lively in the mouth. Flavors are very citrus driven, with mostly lemon and lime, but there's some honeydew melon notes and a touch of pine nuts as well to round out the flavors. Read More

  • Alois Lageder 'Riff' Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed on the nose with gentle dried floral and apple skin notes along with hints of chestnut and dried lemon peel. Round in the mouth without much detail while delivering polleny orchard fruit flavors. There's enough acid here and some mineral note but this is rather boring if cleanly made. 85pts Read More
