Pinot Gris (translated as “Pinot Grey”) has grey-purple hued grapes, but is usually made as a white wine. We make a slightly salmon-pink Pinot Gris, accentuated by the flavor extracting technique of skin contact, aka “orange wine.”

Winemaker Notes

2022 was a warm vintage, but because of our vineyard practices (retaining leaves to shade the grapes) it allowed the grapes to reach full ripeness slowly while retaining fresh fruit & acidity. We destemmed and crushed the grapes then let them sit for a 24-hour cold soak before pressing. This cold soak and skin contact extracts aromatics and some color from the skins, we then pressed and inoculated with yeast. The wine fermented for 21 days at 50 degrees Fahrenheit; it was then aged in stainless steel tanks for 5 months lees stirring every other week. Traditional “Sur Lies” French-style yeast aging releases Champagne-like flavors and adds to the richness of the wine. This labor-intensive wine is made with much love.
