Did you know? Oregon is the fourth biggest producer of wine in the US. And, when it comes to New World wines, it leads the way in the cultivation of the popular Pinot Gris grape. 2016 saw a perfect growing season in Oregon, and that’s certainly apparent from the first sip of Pino Cellars’ Pinot Gris. Expressing notes of pear, melon and apricot, with even a touch of exotic mango, you can enjoy a crisp acidity, some spice, and one seriously smooth finish on this refreshing wine.
There’s a reason it won the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Silver Award two years running. Pino Cellars are purveyors of wines intended to pair with food, and this particular bottle would make a fine match for something summery to accompany a warm alfresco evening. Wash down with a salad of sweet peas, green beans, pea shoots, and mint, and you’ve got yourself a dinner party winner!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio?
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are made with the exact same grape variety. Geography is the main difference. Pinot Gris stems from Alsace, France, while Pinot Grigio has been heavily popularized by the Lombardy region of Italy. Oregon and Michigan are two of the leading producers of Pinot Gris in the New World, and characteristics typical of these regions are plenty of orchard fruit notes, with just a hint of citrus and some spice. The 2016 Pino Cellars Pinot Gris embodies everything you would expect, and everything your palate wants from this glorious grape.
