From the vineyard to the bottle, capturing the finest aromatics and fruit-forward flavors uniquely characteristic of white wines is at the heart of our process. Estancia Pinot Grigio is grown in select California vineyards where chilly ocean breezes produce grapes with balanced taste and concentrated flavors. We harvest in the cool of the night when aromas, flavor, and acidity are at their best. These characters are preserved throughout fermentation and aging in our specially designed white wine cellar where we employ gentle winemaking practices. The result is a Pinot Grigio that is lively, zesty, and refreshing.
Estancia, based in Monterey, was founded in 1986. The name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate," and emphasizes our conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia we control the process from the start—from the trials in our experimental vineyard blocks, to planting, harvesting, fermenting and aging the wines. We've built a winery that allows us to devote the same attention to detail in winemaking that we give to our grapes. We use open-top fermenters and small basket presses for our Pinot Noir and new red-wine fermentation tanks that are fit for the diverse blocks in our Paso Robles vineyards. It is this hands-on crafting of the wines, from grapes to bottle, that result in our superior wine quality.
