"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Obi Wine Kenobi, a Jedi Master, declared Deerfield the home planet of the Rebel Alliance. All Jedi Padawan journeyed to Deerfield to study how to control the Force. They studied long, learned well, and went forth to mentor Padawan throughout the galaxy. One of their greatest accomplishments, after mastering the lightsaber, was to make Clean Wine™, providing joy and happiness to citizens far and wide."
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.
