GRIS-LECTRIC

The Willamette Valley’s northerly location and cool climate doesn’t put it at the top of the list where one would expect to find world-class vineyards. While it’s true that not every variety can ripen to success here, what this corner of Oregon does well it does better than almost anybody.

Pinot Gris is the region’s signature white wine, where the long, cool growing season and typically warm autumn sunshine allows for a beautiful, vivid expression of fruit without being encumbered by too much alcohol or forced to be rendered sticky sweet. Coral Pinot Gris is the perfect expression of this celebrated variety, treasured by locals and proudly served in your glass as well.
