Winemaker's Notes

We produce artisan crafted, Willamette Valley Pinot Gris from carefully selected vineyards. This pale straw colored Pinot Gris displays generous floral, pear, and white peach aromas. On the palate this beautifully balanced wine is initially crisp with zesty citrus and granny smith apple flavors that lead into a delightfully fruity finish which is long and extremely clean. This refreshing wine goes extraordinarily well with shellfish, creamy pasta dishes, light appetizers and sunny weather. Enjoy!
"
"A ripe Oregon gris, this wine has a luxurious opulence that brings to mind Alsace wines. It smells of pears and apples overlaid with notes of vanilla bean, nutmeg and sweet pea blossoms. On the palate it's rich and elegant, concentrated and deep, its pear flavors brought to a close with a lofty minerality. It will stand up to choucroute with aplomb."

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. Pinot Grigio is the Italian version of the grape,...
