9 Northwest Pinot Gris from 9 appellations
Pinot Gris is not only one of the most food-friendly white wines in the Pacific Northwest, but it’s also among the most versatile.
Pinot Gris traditionally is grown in the Alsace region of France, northern Italy and Germany. Here in the Pacific Northwest, it is Oregon’s most popular white wine grape, and it is the No. 3 white wine grape in Washington (after Riesling and Chardonnay) – and Washington actually makes about the same amount of Pinot Gris as Oregon.
The grape has shown a remarkable ability to grow in many areas of the Pacific Northwest, and we recently tasted examples from nine American Viticultural Areas spanning Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
