MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA

The coastal hills of California are folded into each other in a geologic morass of ridges and river valleys. From this cacophony, shapes emerge – those of neatly arranged vineyard rows splaying over ridgetops in carefully constructed terraces. Here, at the edge of what is possible in viticulture, you find Origami Pinot Blanc being grown. You can taste the excitement and tension of growing on the edge in every bottle.

WINE PROFILE

Origami Pinot Blanc is an elegant, bright and sophisticated white wine with aromas of white flowers, stone fruit and hints of tropical fruit such as pineapple.  The palate has balanced acidity and bright fruit, making Origami a perfect match for a wide variety of cuisine.

PINOT BLANC

With many of our calendar selections, we sought new and unique wines, and Origami Pinot Blanc certainly fit the bill. Very little of this unique grape variety is seen outside of its traditional home, the foothills of the Alps in France, Italy and Germany. With a very similar landscape and even more friendly grape growing climate, Pinot Blanc is on the rise in California.

Pinot Blanc requires decades of experimentation, improvement and fine-tuning to produce a signature style found nowhere else in the world.  It’s creamy like Chardonnay, tart like Riesling and fruity like Sauvignon Blanc.  We are thrilled to bring you Origami Pinot Blanc as an introduction to the infinite appeal of this unique grape variety.
