union-wine-co-underwood-pinot-gris-nv-canBest Buy! Veteran winemaker Ryan Harms owns and operates one of Oregon’s fastest-growing wineries, and he remains dedicated to getting fruit-forward, unpretentious Oregon wine into the hands of more consumers. He’s even developed a mobile tasting truck. He produces more two-thirds of his production of this tier of Pinot Gris in 375-milliliter aluminum cans — think of wine in a beer can. It’s a deliciously clean wine with aromas of tangerine, peach, Asian pear, apple and alyssum blossom. Bright flavors of orchard fruit, backed by lime zest and peach pit, make this vibrant and a good foil for scallops. You can find the wines in a four-pack at grocery stores at $6 per can.
