Winemaker Notes

The straw yellow color with faint greenish highlights leads into a floral fragrance of wisteria and a fruity sensation of green apples. The flavour is dry, with good acidity, and delicate mineral overtones.

So you think you all about white wines? I'll bet you are like me and seldom think about the pleasures of Pinot Bianco (more commonly known as Pinot Blanc). The 2014 Kettmeir Pinot Bianco is sure to turn your head. This wine has plenty of flavors, a nice soft underbelly and a long, crisp finish, a perfect choice for orange roughy or fresh tuna sashimi.

Kettmeir Lake Caldaro Winery Image

Since 1919, Kettmeir has been at the heart of winemaking in Alto Adige, the lush Alpine region we call home. Drawing on generations of careful craftsmanship and passion for flavor, we produce Alto Adige’s most precious, hidden treasures: exceptional wines that pair perfectly with the foods and friends that fill life with flavor. Kettmeir is located in the hills of Alto Adige, a unique and beautiful region in the Alpine north of Italy. In this superb territory are ideal conditions for grape cultivation: a range of soil types, altitudes, and temperatures. The fully modernized winery continues its commitment to the region it calls home and to caring for the vines which form the essence of its prestigious wines.

A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino.

Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of non-native, international grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Merlot produced. But Trentino's native and most unique red variety, Teroldego, while still rare, is gaining popularity. It produces a deeply colored red wine rich in wild blackberry, herb, coffee and cocoa.

The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) focuses on small-scale viticulture, with great value placed on local varieties—though international varieties have been widely planted since the 1800s. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are at extreme altitude but on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure.

Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed, Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero.

The primary white grapes are Pinot grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon blanc, Müller Thurgau. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot grigio in Italy is made here.

Approachable, aromatic and pleasantly plush on the palate, Pinot Blanc is a white grape variety most associated with the Alsace region of France. Although its heritage is Burgundian, today it is rarely found there and instead thrives throughout central Europe, namely Germany and Austria, where it is known as Weissburgunder and Alto Adige where it is called Pinot Bianco. Interestingly, Pinot Blanc was born out of a mutation of the pink-skinned Pinot Gris. Somm Secret—Chardonnay fans looking to try something new would benefit from giving Pinot Blanc a try.
