    Quick Overview

    From the renowned Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, this bright, fresh Pinot Grigio has been carefully crafted to be the perfect complement to a wide variety of foods.  The hints of ripe peach, citrus, honeysuckle and apple, coupled with a pleasing minerality and mouthwatering crisp finish truly enhance the flavors in seafood, chicken, lighter pasta dishes and summer salads.


    Great care has gone into making the exceptional wine.  The fruit was whole-cluster pressed and then racked and vinfied at cooler temperatures to preserve the aromatic fruity profile of the wine.  Russian River Valley is famous for excellent Pinot Noir but this wine is proof that the region can produce Pinot Grigio that is just as glorious and notable.

    “Dry, mineral-rich and textural, the sun-ripened pear and golden honey/white floral tones soften any austerity in this light golden wine. White flowers tease the nose and seashell tannins coat the tongue, while tart apples clean the palate.”

    The fragrances of lemon blossoms and honeysuckle hit your nose as soon as you pop the cork on this seductive white wine. It's so flavorful, so long in fruit and exotic in spices, and finishes mercifully dry. Twenty percent of barrel fermentation adds the perfect touch of creaminess. Editors' Choice.

    I didn't know what to expect from this wine. Would Pinot Grigio from the Russian River Valley taste tart and light, as the varietal often does in northern Italy, or rich and lush, as it sometimes does in northern California under its French moniker, Pinot Gris? Well, the answer turned out to be neither, or a bit of both. Like its Italian cousins, this wine is dry and crisp, but it also is fairly fleshy, and marked by ripe fruit flavors. Most important, it displays fine balance and a long, satisfying finish. Try it with hearty seafood dishes.

    This is one of the most fantabulous Pinot Grigios made in California. It is pricey, but I highly recommend it as a special treat.
