Pinot Gris is, in fact, not a white grape, as it turns pink when it’s ready to be harvested.

An old axiom about food pairings with Pinot Gris goes like this: “Pinot Gris and things from the sea.”

And that why the crisp, refreshing flavors of Northwest Pinot Gris goes perfectly with our coastline’s natural bounty. Shellfish, halibut, salmon. They all are perfect accompaniments with Pinot Gris, which has grown into being Oregon’s No. 1 white wine grape and Washington’s No. 3 (behind Chardonnay and Riesling).

Here are a dozen delicious examples of Pinot Gris from Washington, Oregon and British Columbia that we’ve tasted recently. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly.
