Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Grigio is a traditional Italian grape variety that thrives in the moderate climate of the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey. Tamas Estates Pinot Grigio is becoming more and more popular, and for good reasons… It is crisp and refreshing, with full flavors of tangerine and pear. Also, Pinot Grigio is a wonderful alternative to Chardonnay, especially as an apertif or to cool the palate when dining on spicy foods. Try it with crispy appetizers, tangy barbecue sauces and Thai food.

Also great with:
Artichoke, Arugula and Prosciutto Salad with Parmesan Vinaigrette.

My Notes:

About Ivan Tamas Wines:

In 1984, Iván Tamás Fuezy and Steve Mirassou left their respective companies to start Iván Tamás Winery. Having worked in the wine business for decades in a time when the industry was far more fraternal than it is now, Ivan and Steve's paths crossed often. In fact, Ivan worked with Steve at Mirassou Vineyards for a time. Thus, the partnership began with a high level of familiarity. After several years as negociants, the two partners found a home in the Livermore Valley. Today Iván Tamás is a bonded winery producing about 60,000 cases per year of eight varietals, including the "house" Chardonnay and Cabernet for the Ritz-Carlton Hotels around the world.
