About the Producer

Cavit is a leading co-operative in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy. The winery began as a consortium of associated grape growers in 1950, with a dedicated winery at Ravina di Trento built in 1964. Today It unites 11 separate cellars and their combined 5,300 grape growers across 6,200 hectares of vineyard, to produce an impressively broad portfolio from an intriguing palette of indigenous and international grape varieties. Trentino has a much higher proportion of wines produced as DOC than any other region in Italy - an average of 80% of the region's wines have a DOC classification, compared to around 30% elsewhere in the country. Remarkably, Cavit accounts for 60% of this region's wine production and they advise and supervise all aspects of this production from the vineyard to the bottle. Their site at Maso Toresella on the shores of Lake Toblino was the historic residence of the Prince Bishops of Trento, surrounded by 6.5 hectares of vineyard. It is one of the most significant 'masi' (rural estates) in the whole of Trentino. They have worked with the San Michele all’Adige Oenological Institute, since 1988, to develop wines of the highest quality. In 1993 Cantina Altemasi was established, also at Ravina, not far from the region's capital of Trento - for the production and maturation of Classic Trentodoc and Charmat Method sparkling wines. Trento Doc was the first Classical Method sparkling wine DOC to be established anywhere in the world after Champagne, and the first in Italy.

Vineyard and Winery

Sanvigilio Pinot Grigio is produced in Oltrepo Pavese in the province of Pavia, Lombardy. The vines are cultivated on the hillsides at an altitude ranging from 200 to 400m above sea level in a climate which features hot summers and cold winters with 600 to 900mm of rainfall per year, concentrated mostly in late autumn and early spring. Grapes are harvested end of August/first week of September. Grapes are soft pressed and the must cooled. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 18 to 20 degrees C
