Location of VineyardAmong the northernmost vineyards in Italy, the 620 acres that provide grapes for the Tramin winery are located in Alto Adige, better known to its mostly German-speaking inhabitants as the Sudtirol. These vines grow in an exquisite, high-walled glacial valley that protects them from the northern cold and traps the sun”s warmth. The winery itself is located on the Wine Route (Strada di Vino/Weinstrasse) in the commune of Termeno - or Tramin in German - a few miles south of the provincial capital Bolzano (Bozen) and 60 miles from the Austrian border. Approximately 37 acres of Tramin”s vineyards are currently cultivated using organic and biodynamic principles.Varietal Composition100% Pinot Grigio
