"Estate-bottled BOTTEGA VINAIA is the outcome of a vision shared by Giacinto Giacomini and Anselmo Martini, managing director and lead winemaker, respectively, at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Giacomini and Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italy's Trentino region that, year after year, consistently produce the highest quality grapes. This select group of family-farmed vineyards is the source of Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional line of artisan wines that reflects the authentic qualities of the Trentino terroir. Thanks to Giacomini's and Martini's passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italy's top-notch premium wine producers. Production Area Grapes are sourced from a tiny cluster of vineyards located 400-550 meters above sea level in the Dolomite Alps north of Lake Garda. These vineyards share a microclimate and soil conditions singularly well suited to production of high quality Pinot Grigio and have been farmed by the same two families for over 100 years. In daylight hours this area enjoys the warming effects of nearby Lake Garda, helping to keep the fruit moisture-free and resistant to disease. Cool nights promote fragrant, intense aromas uncommon in Pinot Grigio Grape Varieties 100% Pinot Grigio Vinification Grapes are handpicked and vinified on site. Musts are obtained from a gentle pressing, and fermentation conducted using selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 68 degrees to 72 degrees F.
