Our Pinot Grigio has bright fruit character of grapefruit, pear, melon, citrus zest and blood orange. Honeysuckle, spice and delicate herbal nuances weave through the enticing aromas. The dry, silky flavors make it a food-friendly wine, equally compatible with an elegant seafood entrée or a summer picnic.
We make our Pinot Grigio in a style that honors Californian's soils and climate yet pays tribute to the Mondavi family's Italian heritage. For this vintage, we selected the grapes from Monterey County, where cool coastal winds temper the sun and sandy soils provide optimum growing conditions for the Pinot Grigio vines.
Discovered by monks in Burgundy during the 14th century, Pinot Grigio is a lightly-pigmented cousin of the Pinot Noir grape. Pinot Grigio develops a myriad of flavors in the vineyard, as a result of soils and mesoclimates, which has made it a favorite variety in Italy and France for centuries. This is a refreshing wine to sip alone or enjoy with a variety of foods, such as seared Ahi tuna, ceviche or vegetarian spring rolls.
