Carletto is the joining of two families whose wine history's go back 150 years. In this case it is Armando De Zan and his wife, Elviana Candoni De Zan. Both were born in the Veneto of winemaking families. They came to the United States when Armando took a senior position with a large wine and spirits group in Atlanta. Their two daughters were six and eight at the time and Armando's position kept them here until his daughters completed college.

By then, it was time to renew the heritage of both families and establish Carletto. Selling wine isn't quite the same as growing the grapes and making it. Though both Armando's and Elviana's family's were wine producers, they were not as involved as most family members. That, of course all changed when they established Carletto. The winery is named after Armando's uncle and mentor who was a well-known and decorated viticulturist.

It's no secret that many of the best Pinot Grigios come from the Veneto. The history of this grape grown here goes back hundreds of years. Our selection is a classic rendition. While it's lighter character and lower alcohol is what we appreciate the most here, it is by no means simple. The lower alcohol actually helps bring out the delicate flavors of apple and kiwi instead of mask them.

The crisp acidity brings it all together and would be a perfect addition to a shrimp cocktail appetizer, crab crostini or smoked salmon.
