Barone Fini specializes in producing wines of two single varietals, Pinot Grigio and Merlot, resulting in wines that are pure expressions of the grapes they are made from. As our father Count Francesco would say, “The wines are truthful, naked wines where it is all about the grape.”
Our Pinot Grigio and Merlot grapes are grown on mature vines at high altitudes which promote depth of flavor and maximizes the fruit’s exposure to sunlight. The grapes are then harvested by hand and undergo rigorous hand sorting to ensure only the best fruit is used for our wines. Barone Fini has been perfecting its winemaking techniques for centuries using sustainable farming methods and practices that involve little human intervention.
In 1975, Barone Fini wines were designated DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata), Italy’s highest quality classification for Pinot Grigio and Merlot. Since then, our family has been committed to upholding our DOC status and to delivering wine of the highest quality at an approachable price year after year.
