The Pinot Project Pinot Grigio was harvested entirely from the prestigious Veneto region of Italy. Harvesting was done at night, to ensure cool temperatures and retain crisp fruit quality. Clusters were fully destemmed prior to pressing. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. A cold fermentation was necessary to preserve delicate and fresh fruit flavors. Malolactic fermentation was blocked, and the wine was absolutely not chaptalized or acidified. The finished blend was rested in steel six months before being transferred to glass.
