Obtained totally from Pinot Gris grapes, a variety also called Ruländer when it was introduced in the second half of the 1800s in the Gorizia area. It immediately proved to be very suitable for the clayey marls of Collio, in particular for the slopes of these hills. It is distinguished from all other grapes by its characteristic color which tends to copper. Already in 1891 in Gorizia they recommended "its spreading in every place where it is aimed to produce fine white wines of the highest order". Gradis'ciutta has been in business since 1975.
Grapes are produced in Budignacco, Pozar and Dragica vineyards, at an altitude from 100 to 140 meters above sea level in soils consisting of clayey marl.
