selection range

Unterebner Pinot grigio was launched in 1989 as a symbol of Cantina Tramin’s pursuit of excellence. It reveals the surprising finesse and elegance of this grape variety, with a decisive alpine twist, beyond any fashion and trends.


                  Unterebner delivers far and beyond your standard Pinot Grigio…. It boasts more complexity than you might expect!

vintage description

A long winter left the vines dormant until early April. Bud break was followed by a drop in temperatures, which delayed flowering. The weather remained changeable throughout the summer, with a very hot June and wet July, providing the ideal groundwork for the imminent maturation period. August presented itself from its best side, with sunny and dry weeks and extraordinarily low temperatures at night. Apart from few showers in late September/early October, the weather during the harvest, which started 10 days later than last year and with lower volumes than usual, was characterised by many warm days with increasingly cooler nights. The white wines of the 2021 vintage showcase great depth and reveal pronounced freshness and delicate fruity notes on the palate, whereas the fuller bodied red wines boast mature tannins and fresh aromas of fruit. 


  • grapes: Pinot Grigio
  • yield: 50 hl/ha
  • altitude: 400 – 600 m
  • aspect: southeast 85 %, south 15 %
  • harvest: mid-September
  • soil: calciferous gravel with loam on porphyry bedrock
  • age of vines: 10 – 30 years
  • climate: extreme interplay between sunny days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and the cool
    nights marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains
  • bottles produced: ca. 29,000 bottles , 150 magnum bottles and a few other large formats


At harvest, the grapes are delivered in small bins and immediately gently pressed. The must ferments slowly at controlled temperatures (18-20°C), partly in oak barrels (30 – 40 hl), and partly in tonneaux, where malolactic fermentation also occurs. The wine is clarified through natural sedimentation of particles.

Maturation takes place in large oak barrels (30-40 hl) with a smaller part in tonneaux, always on the lees until the end of August. After bottling, the wine matures in the bottle for at least another 3 months. Total maturation period is thus at least 14 months.
