With aromas of nectarine and fresh peach, our crisp and refreshing Woodbridge Pinot Grigio is a food-friendly wine and a delightful addition to any warm and sunny afternoon. Originating from the northern coast of Italy, Pinot Grigio has long been known for its ability to pair well with seafood and other light dishes. Our Pinot Grigio is a well-rounded wine with a peach-citrus finish that pairs nicely with oysters, roast chicken, or Brie. Serve well chilled.
Pinot Grigio is considered a natural mutation of the Pinot Noir grape and was first identified in the 14th century in Burgundy. Since then, this unique vine has traveled the globe. It thrives in the rich loam soils of our vineyard in Lodi, California, yielding grapes with ripe, perfumed aromas and silky flavors, and has become a popular variety for new plantings.
Just after harvesting, we gently pressed the grapes to capture the fresh, fragrant character and crisp, natural acidity. The juice was then cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks to emphasize Pinot Grigio’s fruitiness. Because we wanted to focus on fruit, the wine is not barrel-aged. Our winemaker enhanced the flavor profile by blending the Pinot Grigio wine with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia.
