Pinot Gris a food-friendly Northwest favorite
One of the most food-friendly wines to invade the Pacific Northwest in recent times is Pinot Gris, most famous in France’s Alsace region or northern Italy (where it’s known as Pinot Grigio).
And here in the Great Northwest, Pinot Gris produces a deliciously refreshing and fruit-driven white wine that pairs perfectly with fresh seafood and other areas of our local styles of cuisine, including Asian-influenced dishes.
In Oregon, Pinot Gris is the No. 2 grape (after Pinot Noir) and the No. 1 white grape (far outpacing Chardonnay). In Washington, it is the No. 3 white wine grape, behind Chardonnay and Riesling.
Here are a dozen delicious Northwest Pinot Gris we’ve tasted recently. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly.
