Volunte Pinot Grigio is 100% Pinot Grigio from the Veneto region in North East Italy. The Pinot Grigio grapes are carefully picked by hand in mid-August, when the grapes are very crisp and have very good acidity. The grapes are destemmed and very gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to fermentation the juice is chilled to allow a natural separation of sediment and juice. After racking, selected yeasts are added to initiate the alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled conditions of 18C in stainless steel tanks for approximately 10-15 days.
TWP Wines is run by Stefano Girelli, whose family has been at the heart of Italian winemaking for three generations.
Stefano’s portfolio stretches the length of Italy, from the Veneto, to Tuscany, to Puglia and Sicily, and places a strong emphasis on Stefano’s passion for organic methods. Many of the wines are certified organic (and vegan!) and all are made in an nature friendly way, with a long-term commitment to the environment.
Leading consultant winemaker, Stefano Chioccioli, a friend and colleague of Stefano Girelli for many years, uses the best possible indigenous grapes to create wines with great quality and individual character. The Wine People’s wines speak of their terroir.
