Grape Varieties100% Gewurztraminer
BackgroundEstate-bottled Bottega Vinaia is the outcome of a vision by lead winemaker Anselmo Martini at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italy Trentino region that, year after year, consistently produce the highest quality grapes. This select group of family-farmed vineyards is the source of Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional line of artisan wines that reflects the authentic qualities of specific vineyard sites in the Trentino terroir. Thanks to Anselmo Martinis passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italy's top-notch premium wine producers.
