Winemaker's Notes:

The Seghesio family has grown grapes in Sonoma County since 1895 and in Russian River Valley since 1961. In 1995, Seghesio Family Vineyards began an aggressive move toward producing all estate-owned or -farmed wines that included an extensive vineyard-replanting program. Pinot Grigio was part of that plan to grow intriguing varieties in the best and most appropriate sites. Noted for its unusual grayish/pink clusters and shared lineage with Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio is well-suited to the cooler climate of the Russian River Valley.

Vineyard Location Estate-owned and -farmed vineyards in Russian River and Dry Creek valleys. Whole cluster pressed, 100% stainless steel tank fermented, left sur lees in tank until bottling to add richness and textural complexity while making pure, bright varietal essences. Flavors of sweet melon and juicy white peaches. Firm acidity with clean finish.

About Seghesio Family Vineyards:

Established in 1985, when Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Seghesio Family Vineyards produces wines that honor the history of Sonoma and the Seghesio family. Seghesio Family Vineyards' 300 acres in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys represent some of the oldest vineyards and proprietary clones. With a passionate belief that wine is made in the vineyard, Seghesio pairs a century of experience on these treasured sites with aggressive farming techniques. True to their oldest plantings, Seghesio concentrates on Zinfandel, Italian varietals and Pinot Noir. Ted Seghesio is the winemaker.
