Pinot Bianco


Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards planted between 250 and 550 meters on calcareous clay and gravel soils. The name of this wine comes from the patron of a small village above Tramin, Sella, Saint Mauritius.


Alto Adige DOC



vintage description

A dry winter and an initially cold month of March were followed by above-average temperatures in spring, favouring early bud break and premature flowering. From mid May to early June the weather was mostly rainy and wet. During the following ripening stage rainfall was evenly distributed and only a few hot days made for short periods of drought. Throughout the summer the nights were refreshingly cool. Harvest began in early September and until mid October it was repeatedly interrupted by single days of rain, luckily followed by longer periods of sun. The white wines are crispy and fresh and have an intense olfactory appeal. Finesse and elegance characterise the red wines, which already hint at a great aging potential.


  • grapes: Pinot Bianco
  • yield: 55 hl/hectare
  • altitude: 400 – 600 m
  • soil: calcareous clay and gravelly soils
  • climate: extreme interplay between sunny days, influenced by the Mediterranean climate, and cool nights, marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains


The grapes for this wine are harvested in small bins and then gently pressed off to steel tanks where the must ferments at controlled temperature (19° C) without malolactic fermentation.

tasting notes

straw-coloured with tinges of green

Moriz smells of pear, citrus and dry fruits with light notes of butter. 

Fresh and rich on the palate, this Pinot Bianco boasts a full body with matching minerality, and a succulent and lengthy finish.
