Winemaker's Notes:

Unpretentious and fun. Pinot Grigio is a wonderful wine to enjoy on the porch, the backyard, the cul-de-sac, or wherever you may find yourself. A long-lasting crisp wine loaded with flavors of spiced pear, grapefruit, white peach, and just a touch of lemon lime. Enjoy with friends or all by yourself. Either way you have made a "Goode" choice.

To us, there's nothing better than enjoying a glass of our Pinot Grigio with grilled chicken, fish & chips, and calamari. Light pastas are a hit too!

About Murphy-Goode:

Twenty years ago, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready shared a vision: grow distinctive grapes, produce delicious wine, have fun and make friends in the process. They founded their three-family partnership in 1985 and launched the brand with two wines: estate grown Fumé Blanc and Chardonnay.

In the beginning, only the Murphy family's ranch and the Murphy-Goode Vineyard provided the grapes. Over the years, Murphy-Goode Winery steadily increased production, expanding the winery capacity and augmenting the harvest with fruit from the winery's "grower partners," local farmers and neighbors who shared the Murphy-Goode vision.

Initially the partners custom-crushed their grapes at a neighboring winery; consultant Merry Edwards guided the winemaking. After constructing a modest production facility on Tim Murphy's Alexander Valley ranch in 1987, they hired Winemaker Christina Benz. Chris made fifteen vintages of Murphy-Goode wine before turning the winemaking over to David Ready Jr. in 2001.

In recent years, the winery's focus has shifted from primarily white wine to distinctive red wines, particularly Bordeaux blends. Today, Murphy's three sons oversee the vineyards. Dave Ready's two sons make the wine. With exceptional grapes, inspired winemaking and the guiding values of the founding partners, the Murphy-Goode team is entering a fresh, new era of excellence.
