A little bit of Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris history

Pinot Gris is from the Burgundy region in France. Known since the Middle Ages, it spread in other regions like Switzerland and Germany over time. Pinot Gris is the result of a genetic mutation of the Pinot Noir grape that occurred centuries ago.

In 1961, Santa Margherita [1] wine group, located in Veneto – Italy, has been the first company in the world to vinify Pinot Grigio grapes as a white wine. 

What does Ramato mean?

Ramato” means “coppery” and it comes from the copper color of the wine which is caused by the maceration of the juice in the grape’s skin. This is common practice for rosé wine. Check out our wine-making wine to learn more about how rosé wine is made.

Cool climates help Pinot Grigio grow at its best and mature relatively early causing high sugar levels. Depending on the vinification style, this can lead to either a wine high in alcohol if fermented to dryness, or a sweeter wine.
