Russian River Valley
Question: what’s the difference between Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris? Answer: nothing, it’s the same grape. In France it’s Pinot Gris and in Italy it’s Pinot Grigio. And we’re Italian, hence Pinot Grigio on our label. We’re glad we cleared that up! Our Pinot Grigio is what happens when you take grapes from our vineyards right along the river in cool-climate Russian River Valley and ferment them only in stainless steel — a crisp, clean, refreshing, light-bodied wine with a lot of sass.

Aromas & Flavors
Our 2016 Pinot Grigio is a refreshing and light-bodied white wine from cool climate Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of green apple, melon, white peach, lime, apricots, Meyer lemon, a hint of honeyed lychee and orange blossom...bright and crisp with full, concentrated flavors that linger to the finish.
Pinot Grigio is perfect as an apéritif and is ideal to pair with many types of cuisines. Our favorite pairings include dishes such as seafood salad, pan-seared scallops, oysters on the half shell, or entrées with lively and spicy flavors one might find in Asian cuisine.
How It's Made
Individual lots of hand-harvested Pinot Grigio grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed to minimize any color or harsh tannin extraction, then racked to stainless steel tanks for cold fermentation. This wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to retain its bright flavors and crisp acidity. Depth and complexity are enhanced with weekly lees stirring until bottling.
Grapes from select vineyards in Russian River Valley create this refreshing wine. Overall, 2016 was a good year, with a spring that produced great set. Despite a third year of drought conditions with some rains in our area, the vines produced ideal yields. Overall warmer temperatures during the summer months allowed fruit to achieve mature, ripe flavors. The grapes were harvested in late August and early September.
