Production Techniques
The harvest is done manually in the first 10 days of September. The Chardonnay grapes are then pressed softly to obtain the ‘flower of the grape musts’. After settling for 10-12 hours, they begin to ferment in stainless steel tanks at 18-20 degrees C(65-68 F). Fermentation lasts for 30 days. The red grapes are harvested early to maintain good acid structure and vinified ‘in rose’ in order to impart the characteristic cherry red color once the cuvee is created. The fermented varieties of red and white grapes are then blended together. The wine is then promptly bottled and released.

Combine a half-century of winemaking expertise, the dramatic landscape and terroir of northern Italy, and a profound enjoyment of the good things in life. The result: the CAVIT COLLECTION, source of America’s #1 Italian wine*.

Cavit swept onto the radar of American wine lovers in the 1970s as an early pioneer of a then little-known white wine called Pinot Grigio. Prized for its crisp, elegant character, fruit flavors and delicate floral aroma, Pinot Grigio is a demanding grape to cultivate, but has flourished in northern Italy for over 100 years. Cavit has consistently championed this varietal in the U.S., earning its well-deserved title of America’s #1 Imported Pinot Grigio.

However, there is much more to the CAVIT COLLECTION than outstanding Pinot Grigio. This stellar range of high-quality, approachable and food-friendly wines includes Pinot Noir, Riesling, Oak Zero Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Through the years, savvy wine lovers have come to depend on the CAVIT COLLECTION as their favorite “go-to” source for stylish, elegant and versatile wines, perfect for any occasion.

The Cavit winery is based in Trentino, a picturesque landscape of mountains, lakes, apple orchards and medieval castles. Vineyards in this region enjoy the warming effects of the “Ora del Garda,” a dry, balmy breeze that sweeps across Lake Garda and protects the fruit from external moisture and disease. Contrastingly cool evenings promote rich, intense aromas and flavors in the grapes. Winemaking is overseen by Anselmo Martini, a 20+ year industry veteran and one of northern Italy’s top enologists.
