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

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 or fish. Or light pastas such as linguine and clam sauce or angel hair pasta with shrimp.

Critical Acclaim

"Clean and crisp in acidity, this polished PG features citrus fruit, pear, white flower and spice flavors. It’s a racy, mouth-cleansing wine that’s nice as an apéritif as the day comes to a close.

I am new to wine so I tend to like more of the sweet wines. This one has a strong alcohol taste and smell. I believe I'll have to work my way to this wine, but taking a few sips now and again made the experience better.
