Our 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is our signature white wine of Oregon. We press the pinot gris grapes as whole clusters. They are given a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel, which gives the wine a firm, focused backbone coupled with its lush creaminess. Our pinot gris has complex undertones of earth and mineral with expressive notes of floral, citrus and melon.

Story: We produce a dry style Pinot Gris which accentuates the minerality this varietal clearly expresses. In addition to fermentation size and temperature, the diversity of yeasts used to perform fermentation and the extended period of lees contact prior to blending and bottling contributes greatly to the complexity of this wine.
Pairings: Crab, oysters, halibut, herbed chicken, soft artisan cheeses and fresh fruit.
