Santa Magherita was the first company to vinify the dark Pinot Grigio grapes as white wine. The must is not left on the skins, to avoid its acquiring their rust-red colour. After soft-pressing the must is left to ferment 15 – 20 days at 18 - 20ºC. The wine is then stored at 17 - 18ºC. in special stainless-steel tanks until bottling.

Excellent as an aperitif, ideal accompaniment to seafood salads and fish- and shellfish-based pasta and rice courses. Perfect with white meats and boiled or grilled fish and with soufflés.

In 1961, the Santa Margherita oenologist had what proved to be a brilliant idea. He decided to try the white vinification technique used for the production of French Champagne on the best Pinot Grigio grapes from Trentino-Alto Adige. This led to the creation of an innovative white wine which, with its fresh aroma and silky taste, created a new fashion in white wine drinking. This wine has since continued to gain in popularity both in Italy and abroad, maintaining a clear leadership in the Pinot Grigio D.O.C. category.
