"Oh thank goodness, a producer with a Pinot Grigio that actually tastes of something! Lovely bright fruit, easy mineral notes and a great balance. Such a good wine from my favourite region of Italy for white wines."
Giovanni Blason’s father moved his family to via Roma in Gradisca d’Isonzo in the early 1970s, and began to make wine from the vineyards around the house. Giovanni, who has been running the estate since the early 1990s is the winemaker and Andrea Rossi is his consultant oenologist. They have 45 hectares, 18 of which are under vine. The oldest vines are around the house and over forty years old. The others range in age between ten and twenty-five years. The soil is gravelly limestone, with lots of pebbles, and very rich in minerals, especially iron – you can tell that from the reddish earth.
