Le Monde Pinot Grigio DOC

Cantina Le Monde is located in Friuli, within the famous Grave del Friuli area that extends from the foothills of the Alps to the Adriatic Sea. The origins of the estate that once owned the farmland can be traced back to the early 1700’s. The name ‘Le Monde’ is taken from the Germanic-Latin word “Mundio”, an ancient Germanic law that ‘protected’ the farmlands of the region. Cantina Le Monde ‘protects’ and safeguards its vineyards, farming in a healthy way, that respects nature and the sustainable future of ancient soils.

“We don’t do what we do for the plaudits of our profession. If critics endorse our product, that’s great news, but truly, we do what we do at Le Monde for all wine drinkers – for everyone – for the people” – Alex Maccan, owner of Cantina Le Monde.

Certified sustainable.
