2008 will be remembered as one of the best growing seasons Oregon has seen since 1999. The select vineyard sites used to produce the Pinot Gris experienced a cool spring, which put bud break behind schedule. Bud break was followed by days of overcast weather making June and July two of the coolest summer months in recent history. Only 1.5 inches of rain fell during the autumn months resulting in considerably less precipitation than forecasts predicted. Oregon experienced one of the longest harvests on record and we were able to pick at our leisure as grapes reached full potential. All fruit was harvested under ideal conditions.
The 2008 Pinot Gris displays aromatics of green apple, pink grapefruit and citrus. In the mouth, the wine has great balance; appealing fruit and a pleasing acidity, creating a mouth feel that is clean and refreshing while maintaining weight and substance that carry through the long finish. The wine pairs beautifully with our fresh Northwest seafood - try it with scallops, crab and even salmon!
"As classy a bottle as you might expect from veteran winemaker Laurent Montalieu. Once again the fruit is crystal clear, setting up fresh pear, green apple and pink grapefruit flavors against crisp, juicy acidity. The finish is lively and spicy."
After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, the husband and wife team of Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu has created an exciting new family operated winery, Solena Cellars. Solena is the combination of the Spanish and French words Solana and Solene celebrating the sun and the moon, and the name that Laurent and Danielle, gave to their daughter.

Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include:

Pinot Gris/Grigio(PEE-noh gree/GREE-jee-oh) While Pinot Grigio is in fact the same grape as Pinot Gris (just the Italian take on it), the differences of wine they create can be immense. Pinot Gris' most popular and successful region is Alsace, France, an area of the country that actually puts the name of the grape on the label.
