Winemaker's Notes:

This blend of grapes from all four vineyards shows rich varietal character and complexity rarely found in Pinot gris (grigio). Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine gains added dimensions from remaining on the lees until bottling. It is given only one loose filtration prior to bottling. Our first Pinot gris was produced in 1970, a full ten years before other winegrowers recognized its New World potential. The Eyrie Vineyards continues to be credited with setting the standard for flavor and value.

About Eyrie:

The Eyrie Vineyards (eye-ree) was established by David and Diana Lett in 1966. Yamhill County's pioneer vineyard produced the Willamette Valley's first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the first Pinot Gris in America. The vineyards are located in the Dundee Hills, the winery in nearby McMinnville.
