Trento DOC is the expression of the land it comes from, Trentino. It is made only with selected Trentino Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier grapes produced by the ‘Classic Method’. The territorial characteristics, the variety of the climate, the typical altitude of Trentino and the hand of the man who creates it make it a real unique and inimitable sparkling wine from the mountains.
Trento Doc, the brand created in 2007, comes from the union of Trento and the suffix -doc, that seales the path taken since Trentino, in 1993, got the first Denomination of Controlled Origins in Italy dedicated exclusively to the Classic Method.
