Winemaker's Notes:

The Pinot Gris is made from our 5-acre estate vineyard, Emilia, named after Paul's mother-in-law; it borders the north side of the winery and tasting room. It was planted in 1993 at a high density with two different clones and two different rootstocks. The Estate Pinot Gris is made in a classic style, a dry and food-friendly Pinot Gris that is fearless of acidity.

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.
