    About winery 

    St. Pauls Winery was founded in 1907 in the heart of Alto Adige’s most beautiful winegrowing areas. They are a collective of some of the very best wine growers who sustainably farm the vineyards around the medieval wine village of St. Pauls.

    Tasting notes 

    St. Pauls Pinot Grigio was slowly fermented at a controlled temperature in big oak barrels. Spring blossom and ripe stone-fruit aromas float out of the glass. The fresh rounded palate offers creamy pear and ripe apple. It closes with light hint of almond.
    Rated  90/100 by Wine Advocate

    Alto Adige Valle Isarco

    Alto Adige Valle Isarco is the title used for wines made under the Alto Adige DOC from vineyards which line the Isarco Valley cited in the title. Due to the region's proximity to the Austrian border, the 'Valle Isarco' name can be replaced by its German-language equivalents Eisacktal or Eisacktaler on labels.
