Santa Margherita ‘Valdadige’ Pinot Grigio
The bottle that put Italian Pinot Grigio on the wine map. Clean, fresh, very pure with intense aromas, strong fruit on the palate, good body and an almost creamy texture make Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio a wine of great personality and versatility.
It comes from the prestigious Valdadige region up in the hills in the Alto Adige, where quality Pinot Grigio flourishes. This is a world away from the entry level Pinot Grigio del Venezie that you see in the multiples and supermarkets.
Over 80 years ago, Count Gaetano Marzotto led the revitalization of an abandoned portion of the Venetian countryside. Here, where rivers from the alps cut through the sun-drenched hills on their winding way to the Mediterranean shore, he created much-needed farmlands and restored traditional wine-making in what had been a region of fine vineyards since the time of the Roman Empire. Employing new agricultural science and a commitment to the needs of the Italian people, Marzotto gave this labor of love the name of his dear wife Margherita, and the first piece in the mosaic of Santa Margherita was set.
Since then, Santa Margherita has grown to encompass vineyards across Italy, from the Veneto to Tuscany, producing distinctive, authentic wines of deep tradition and regional character. Their wines are crafted for the evolving tastes of today’s fine wine lovers, and invite you to pair the people and foods in your life with the Pinot Grigio they were made famous, the brilliant Prosecco, complex Chianti Classico Riserva or delicate Sparkling Rose.
Their entire organization to the highest levels of social responsibility and environmental sustainability while remaining committed to their Italian heritage.
