This grape variety originates from Greece, dating back to the first century when it was first called Aminea Gemina. We believe Aminea Gemina is the origin of the Italian white grape variety Greco. Gemina is a unique, white wine blend combining grapes of the south of Italy where Greco is grown, with grapes of the north of Italy, the home of Pinot Grigio. This blend balances our winery’s familial history in the south of Italy with our winemaking influences of Italy’s northern regions." - Dan Petroski
