Never say “Never,” right? Back in 2010 I started making Steel Chardonnay and the response was so great that I said that I'd never make Pinot Grigio again. Well, my staff knows me well enough not to take me that seriously when I say stuff like that. They think it's me changing my mind all the time but I think it's me reacting to plot twists!
That brings us to this new release. Kris Kane up in the Lake Erie region at 21 Brix has been doing a dynamite job growing fruit for us. (He's the source of our wonderful Sauvignon Blanc as well!) Erie has a lake-effect climate that helps retain bright fruit character while still keeping the acidity in check. This Pinot Grigio will make you think twice about the varietal. Look forward to glasses of this on your deck this summer!
