Winemaker Notes

The Sallie Rosato label comes in 6 different variations featuring 6 different colors. Each of these colors signifies a different important aspect of winemaking in Alto Adige:

  • Green: Wanderlust
    • Barefoot on soft grass, wandering across lush green meadows. In the forest cool moss pleasant under your feet and then … a deep breath, birdsong, a moment of peace. Did you know that 50 percent of South Tyrol is mad up of forest?
  • Orange: Enjoyment of Life
    • Sunset, the mountain peaks begin to glow and then suddenly there is that perfect moment … Did you know that the Dolomites belong to the Unesco World Heritage?
  • White: Freedom
    • At the summit. Unforgettable, this feeling of limitless freedom. Did you know that the highest mountain in South Tyrol, King Ortler, is 3,905 metres high?
  • Yellow: Happiness
    • Summer, sun, Alto Adige… and not only in the summer months do you find clear blue skies. Did you know that South Tyrol enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year?
  • Blue: Holiday
    • A summer’s day at the lake. Blazing sun in a crystal blue sky, a warm breeze plays on your skin and then … a plunge into the refreshing water. Did you know that Lake Caldaro is the warmest alpine lake?
  • Pink: Passion
    • An evening among friends. Leave everyday life behind you … Simply switch off. It’s time to enjoy a good glass of wine. Sallie time?
