Winemaker's Notes:

The bright, crisp flavors of this Pinot gris are an inviting palate cleanser, pairing well with a light soup, or lightly spiced Thai dishes featuring shrimp or pork. It also works with richer fish, such as salmon and halibut. Its pear, apple and melon flavors also shine with a fruit and cheese platter, especially with almonds, hazelnuts and some interesting dried fruits as part of the mix.

About Bethel Heights Vineyard:

Planted between 1977 and 1979, Bethel Heights was one of the first vineyards in the Eola Hills, a chain of hills in the center of Oregon's Willamette Valley. The estate winery was established in 1984 and currently produces 10,000 cases of wine annually, most of which still comes from the 50 acre estate vineyard. Bethel Heights specializes in Pinot Noir, but also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
