  • Thought the story behind the Fórra Manzoni Bianco was rather interesting...this wine is made with 100% Manzoni Bianco grapes. This particular grape is white variety cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc. Professor Luigi Manzoni created new grapes by crossing and grafting vines during the 1920’s and 1930’s. Groovy wine! #grandimarchi #aloislagederwines #aloislageder #premiumwines #italianwine #wineinhouston #riesling #pinotblanc
