The Branko estate is located in Collio Goriziano, Italy and owned by the Erzetic family. As a teenager, winemaker Igor Erzetic worked beside his father Branko, to restore a 15 acre terraced vineyard. In 1998, they released their first vintage. The vineyards are planted at 1,968-2,296 feet on sandstone and marl soil from the Eocene Epoch. The climate is strongly influenced by the Adriatic Sea and the Alpine mountains. Branko wines are well balanced with exceptional elegance, complexity and character.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Dec 2013)
The 2012 Collio Pinot Grigio opens to smooth lines and a vibrant quality of fruit. You’ll recognize tones of stone fruit, melon and Golden Delicious apple. Some 10% of the wine is stored in neutral oak and the wine does show a proper level of heft and density as a result. The alcohol (14.5%) is not fully integrated in this vintage. Drink: 2014-2016.
