Anton Jermann left Austria (the land of amazing white wines) in 1880 to settle in Northeast Italy (near Cortina) to make great wines, first in Slovenia then over the border in Fiuli.
His Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Ribolla Gialla and other local varieties took the wine world by storm. His son Silvio and now the third generation of Jermanns
(see Alojz Jermann below enjoying a bottle of Pinot Grigio) are still making great fresh whites with that Teutonic attention to detail and the best quality. So when people ask for
Santa M******a “Pinot Grigio” we offer this wonderful wine.
