OUR WINES: PINOT GRIGIO

The Pinot Grigio grape, a genetic color mutation of the Pinot Noir variety from France’s Burgundy region, gets its name from the Italian word “grigio”, which means grey. This is due to the fact that the grape’s skin color ranges from bluish gray to raspberry-pink. As Napoleon’s armies marched across the European continent, they brought grapes with them. It was during this time that the Pinot Grigio vine took root in Northeastern Italy and it’s only here in these cooler climates that it truly achieves its finest expression, lending it a characteristic personality and especially fragrant, perfumed bouquet.

In early spring, the wine was bottled and aged for 2 months.
