Chardonnay

The Chardonnay grape variety was introduced to Alto Adige by Archduke John around 1835 and later promoted by the founder of Italy's first school of oenology. Originally known as Yellow Pinot Bianco, the variety became popular in Alto Adige in the 1980s. The grapes come from sites around Magrè, Cortaccia, Salorno and Pochi that have the chalky gravel soils that are ideal for growing Chardonnay.
