The Terra Viva Pinot Grigio from Perlage is an organic wine from a young vineyard that offers ideal conditions to deliver high-class wines. The parcel is south facing and the late afternoon mountain breezes create significant temperature differences that contribute to the optimal development of aromas. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it is vinified with skill and precision. Whether to accompany appetizers, a fish dish or just a drink, you will be impressed by this high-quality organic wine and its great price.
Perlage’s Terra Viva has a deep straw yellow colour with golden reflections and aromas of fresh bread, white flowers, pear and apple on the nose. On the palate it is straight, dry and harmonious with its nuances of orange peel, pineapple and peach, all enveloped by a lively acidity.

Perlage was created in 1985 when the seven Nardi brothers, with their parents’ advice and encouragement, embarked on an organic and biodynamic farming adventure. They began by converting the family estate in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superior appellation (DOCG) into organic farming. Perlage is now certified organic by the Demeter Biodynamic Trade Association and the Nardi brothers continue to push the limits to produce quality wines while minimizing the impact on the environment. Beyond the efforts made in the vineyard, other initiatives such as solar panels and a waste materials recycling program demonstrate a willingness to work in a healthy environment respectful of nature.
The Conegliano Valdobbiadene appellation is located 65 km north of Venice and lies between the town of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene on the hills of the province of Treviso, in north-eastern Veneto. Because of the region’s steep slopes mechanical work in the vineyard is challenging which encourages a manual approach, more respectful and less invasive for the environment. Here, aromatic white wines dominate the wine production and it is on this soil that the best Prosecco (sparkling white wine) is produced. In addition to the indigenous grape varieties unique to the region, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet can give surprising results when grown and vinified by good winemakers.
There is, in Treviso, a dynamic, peaceful and balanced co-existence between man and nature. Everything seems to fit perfectly into this picturesque scenery: green hills, morainal soils of volcanic origin, acute slopes and winemakers who have for generations worked the land with dedication and affection.
