A family enterprise, established in the Piemontese town of Tortona in
1914. In the 1980’s, after years of experience in producing wine with
other people’s grapes, Bruno and Carlo Volpi acquired the best properties
available in the Colli Tortonesi, to guarantee the winery high quality local fruit.
In our case though, he acts as bottler and agent for organic wines sourced
in Veneto, Sicily, Puglia, Marche, Molise and Abruzzo.
Vineyard size 115 hectares (suppliers). Organic since 2000.

Pinot Grigio ‘Boirà’ IGT, Cantine Volpi
From San Polo de Piave in the heart of the Trevisio countryside, inland from Venice, comes this rather gentle, understated organic Pinot Grigio. The vineyards are in a natural depression 4 metres below the surrounding farmlands offering plentiful water and richer soils. The wine is a strong yellow straw colour and the bouquet unmistable and immediate with hints of acacia flowers. On the palate it’s dry, on the one hand fairly full-bodied yet delicately flavoured, and notably well-balanced. The latest appealing addition to our growing Italian range from master wine-maker Carlo Volpi.
