Winemaker's Notes:

Our estate vineyard dedicated to Pinot Gris is named Emilia. It was planted adjacent to our winery in 1993 at high density to two different clones and two different rootstocks. We have enjoyed six dry, warm vintages in a row, allowing the grapes to reach ideal maturity.
My Notes:

About Cristom Vineyards:

Utilizing Old World winemaking techniques - whole clusters, native yeast fermentation, and gentle and minimal handling - Cristom handcrafts wines that are smooth, elegant and subtle.

These characteristics have earned Cristom distinction among wine enthusiasts and industry leaders alike, including being named 'Best New World Red' by Decanter magazine.

Our 65-acre estate in the Eola Hills of Oregon's Willamette Valley offers a long growing season, mild climate, warm winds and ancient volcanic soils that make it ideally suited to grow Pinot Noir and other traditional French varietals.
