Pinot Blanco is a white wine grape and a Pinot mutation sharing its genetic fingerprint with Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris (et al). This versatile grape is used in the production of still, sparkling and sweet dessert wines mainly in Europe.
Run by the matriarch Elena Walch, and her two daughters Julia and Caroline in the picturesque Dolomite mountains, Elena Walch centres around the famous Castel Ringberg vineyard, which ‘rings’ 1620 Habsburg castle. With superb cool climate conditions, the steep, sunny slopes of dolomite rock with loose reddish limestone create a unique terroir. This site produces fresh and elegant white wines as well as a famously concentrated and velvety Lagrein - the ‘insiders’ wine of the Alto-Adige. Lagrein has a complex bouquet with spicy aromas, distinctive tannin structure, smooth fullness, and a playful yet rustic elegance.
