Join us as we scale the Dolomite mountains to bring you the tale and tastes of Italy’s Aldo Adige. Yes, they make terrific Pinot Grigio here in the northeast of Italy in vineyards first planted when the region was still part of Austria before WWI. But there’s so much more! Snappy whites from Pinot Bianco and Kerner are delights and mountain reds a bit addictive. And since this is where “spritz” originated, our spin on the classic aperitivo drink just might make an appearance, too! Here’s the line-up:

  • Capelletti Spritz (even better than Aperol Spritz!)
  • Abbazia Novacella Kerner 2023
  • Cantina Terlano Pinot Bianco 2022
  • Cantina Terlano Terlaner DOC 2023
  • Kellerei Kaltern Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2022
  • Cantina Andrian Vernatsch (Schiava) Bocado 2022
  • J. Hofstätter Lagrein Alto Adiges 2020
  • Muri-Greis Pinot Nero Alto Adige 2022

Spotlight on Alto Adige at New Heights will take place at 7pm in our downstairs classroom and will cover seven great wines. As always, we’ll serve up some wine-friendly nibbles and loads of great information as you experience this vinous fusion of Austrian and Italian heritage and style.
