Collio is Friuli’s finest area of production and the Pighin Collio estate is ranked among the top five in the region with its southern-exposed, low-yielding vineyards on deep sandstone soils. The grapes for all of Pighin’s wines are handpicked and pressed in state-of-the-art pneumatic presses. The must is fermented and matured in stainless steel vats (no oak is used), allowing the characteristics of the grape variety to show beautifully.
Wine maker notes
Pighin Pinot Grigio is an estate bottled wine produced from select, late-harvest grapes grown in the firm's vineyards. The western portion of the estate supports meager, chalky stone and gravel soils extremely well constituted for cultivation of white vine varieties, of which 150 acres are planted in Pinot Grigio yielding an average of 3.5 to four tons of grapes per acre, restricted through severe pruning. The berries are gently pressed immediately after harvest in Bucher pneumatic presses and the must chilled and allowed to settle for 24 hours. A temperature-controlled fermentation is then carried out stainless steel tanks at 18°C (59°F) over a period of two weeks. There is no malolactic fermentation or oak contact. The wine is then clarified under refrigeration, stabilized and filtered and kept in stainless steel storage tanks at a temperature of 50°F to retain the wine's freshness until bottling in late winter. The Grave del Friuli estate's average annual yield in Pinot Grigio is 31,000 cases.

Producer
Our history dates back to 1963 when the brothers Luigi, Ercole and Fernando purchased a 200-hectare estate belonging to a noble Friulian family in Risano, in the Friuli Grave D.O.C. zone. After a radical reorganisation of the plots, giving rise to vast plantings of vineyards and orchards, the new winemaking centre housing offices and modern cellars, designed by the world renowned architect Gino Valle, was built in 1967.
