In 1939, David S. Taub, the father of Pinot Grigio, was born. Beyond introducing Pinot Grigio to America, his quest was to showcase Italys finest wines. He dedicated 36 years to pursuing his dream with world-renown winemakers, culminating in this pure expression of Pinot Grigio from the most unique Trentino vineyards. His vision lives on with Infin 1939.
Grapes are hand-picked from two particular vineyard site, which are the only alpine areas above 1300 feet above sea level at which Pinot Grigio can be harvested. The wine was developed in partnership with reputed Italian winemaker, Carlo Ferrini.
VinificationThe 2015 grape harvest took place at the end of September, earlier than usual at these altitudes due to exceptional weather conditions, with seasonal temperatures well above historic averages. The bunches are carefully chosen within the vineyard and are harvested exclusively by hand. The grapes from the two vineyards are harvested separately, as they ripen at slightly different times. The must is gently pressed from whole bunches in order to prevent any color from being extracted from the skins.
