Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Grigio is a varietal that requires mild temperatures and delicate handling. Our Pinot Grigio is grown in the cool climate of Monterey County, which has ideal growing conditions for this grape. Furthermore, the excellent 2009 vintage featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climates changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. Fermented and finished in stainless steel, our Pinot Grigio offers bright, juicy flavors of tropical fruit and an invigorating note of minerals. Diamond Collection Pinot Grigio is delicious with crab legs, grilled halibut or rosemary pork roast.
