Due to cooler than normal temperatures during the growing season, our 2009 Pinot Grigio was harvested on September 16th, several weeks later than normal. We like to see this vineyard reach just the perfect level of ripeness while still retaining a significant amount of acid before we harvest. It's quite a balancing act, but crucial to the outcome. When the summer months start heating up there is nothing better than an unoaked, fruit forward Pinot Grigio with subtle minerality and bright acidity!

Our Crossroads Vineyard in the heart of the Oakville appellation is a crown jewel in our collection of napa Valley vineyards. though Crossroads is planted mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, we have one block planted to a grape we absolutely love, Pinot Grigio. Pinot Grigio in Oakville?! We're not as crazy as you might believe, but we're just crazy enough! this red skinned grape loves the deep soils of Oakville and with the proper water regiment we can grow Pinto Grigio with great acidity and intensity.
