Southern Mendocino has cooler nights and warmer days than just south in Sonoma and is therefore a perfect place to grow Pinot Gris. The Nelson family has been growers there for 59 years.
Pinot Gris, as it is known in France, is known as Pinot Grigio in Italy. This lavender gray colored grape produces a white wine that is crisp and refreshing. This Pinot Gris has notes of white peaches, granny smith apples and pear. It is delightful on a hot summer's day, great with a Salade Nicoise.
