Southern Mendocino has cooler nights and warmer days than Sonoma and is a perfect place to grow Pinot Grigio. The Nelson family have been growing grapes there for almost 60 years.
These lavender gray colored grapes produce a white wine that is crisp and refreshing. It reminds us of white peaches juiced with Granny Smith apples. It’s delightful on a hot summer day. The 2014 Pinot Grigio pairs beautifully with Salade Nicoise and spicy foods.
