In some ways, 2007 was a year of extremes... sub-freezing temperatures in
January and only 60% of normal rainfall. Then a warm spring led to early
budbreak, bloom and set, and the march towards harvest resumed a more

smaller than usual, leading to a significant degree of concentration in 2007

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
Pinot Gris/Grigio(PEE-noh gree/GREE-jee-oh) While Pinot Grigio is in fact the same grape as Pinot Gris (just the Italian take on it), the differences of wine they create can be immense.
