    Winemaker Notes

    This is our premiere vintage of Pinot Grigio, a fresh, lively white wine with fragrant notes of pear, melon, flowers, cinnamon and nutmeg. The wine has an elegant silkiness on the palate that is said to come from the "invisible pigment" of this unique grape. Pinot Grigio is a cousin of the Pinot Noir grape and was first identified in the 14th century in Burgundy. This intriguing variety changes colors in different soils and climates, developing a myriad of seductive nuances. The names Pinot Grigio (in Italy) and Pinot Gris (in France) both mean gray Pinot, referring to the grape's color that ranges from grayish blue to copper hued. Our Woodbridge Pinot Grigio is a delightfully fruity, crisp wine that is wonderful to sip by itself, with appetizers, or lighter entrees. Grilled shrimp with orange zest, a fresh salad of baby field greens with Roquefort dressing, or lemon and rosemary grilled chicken breasts are especially delicious with a chilled glass of our Pinot Grigio. Be creative and try it with any of your favorite dishes. If you like it, the pairing works!

    Robert Mondavi Woodbridge, California
    2002 Pinot Grigio
    The town of Woodbridge is nestled between the Sacramento River Delta and the Sierra Nevada Foothills, surrounded by acres of grapevines. The gnarled old vines you pass along the roads to the winery speak to the history of the Lodi area. Lured by the abundant sunshine that ripened grapes for wine, many Italian immigrants came here in the 1800s. Cesare and Rosa Mondavi, of Sassoferrato, Italy, first immigrated to Minnesota but soon traveled west to settle their family in Lodi, where Robert, his brother, and two sisters grew up among these vineyards. Robert established the Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley in 1966. Looking for a place to produce quality wine for people to enjoy with every meal, he returned to Lodi. In 1979 he acquired the Cherokee Wine Association, established by several Lodi grape growers as a cooperative for producing wine after the repeal of Prohibition. He renamed the property Woodbridge Winery. Today, Woodbridge remains one of a few surviving wineries in the Lodi area that began as a cooperative. In 1979, Woodbridge Winery became the first in the region to convert to single-label wine production with Robert Mondavi red and white wines, affectionately known as Bob Red and Bob White. In 1985 the winery pioneered the gentle, direct-to-press operation for white wines, now practiced industry-wide. In 1986, Woodbridge became the first winery in the popular premium category to produce and vintage date varietally-labeled wines, highly regarded for their complex flavor and character.

    California

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

    Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
