Pinot Blanc
weissburgunder
Pinot blanc was apparently cultivated in Alto Adige for the first time by Archduke Johann of Austria in 1852. Since it developed magnificently within the province, it joined Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon blanc as the leading white wine grape variety in the area. With an elegant scent of apples and lively acidity, Pinot blanc is the perfect everyday wine. In order to get the finesse of its fruitiness right into the bottle without adulteration, winemakers make sparing use of oak barrels with this variety.
