Chardonnay is one of the classic European white grapes that we can grow in this region. Our Chardonnay is cold-fermented in stainless steel from 7-9 months and is made from 100% Jones Family Farms estate-grown fruit. It is closer in style to a Sauvignon Blanc. It has a crisp, clean complexity of yellow apple, lemongrass, and citrus. It pairs well with all kinds of seafood and semi-soft cheeses. It pairs perfectly with quiche, salad, and is a perfect brunch wine.

  • Seafood, lobster, crab
  • Salmon & smoked salmon
  • Aged goat cheeses like Bonne Bouche
  • Brie, Camembert and Gruyere
  • Turkey, chicken and pork

If you like elegant white wines or European Chardonnays, this is your wine!

Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape although the wines are made differently. Our climate is similar to northern France so our Alsatian-style Pinot Gris is richer and fuller than a typical Italian Pinot Grigio. An estate wine, our Pinot Gris (pee no gree) is crisp and fresh with floral aromas and flavors of almond and orange blossom. This wine is cold fermented in stainless steel for 7-9 months and is made from 100% Jones Family Farms vineyards fruit: 90% Pinot Gris, 10% Muscat Ottonel. This medium-bodied, dry white wine pairs well with shellfish and chicken and is a great cooking wine, especially for dishes that have lemon butter sauces like Sole or Chicken Francaise. What grows together goes together and our Pinot Gris is a perfect example that pairs beautifully with CT seafood.

Food Pairings:

  • Shellfish - mussels, clams, oysters, and scallops (ceviche)
  • Smoked salmon
  • Vegetarian dishes
  • Cato Corner - Womanchego, goat cheese, gruyere, brie

This dry, aromatic, sparkling white wine has bright flavors of grapefruit, honeysuckle, and hints of white peach.

Whimsical White is cold-fermented in stainless steel for 7-9 months and is carbonated and bottled using the "Charmant" method, which yields a Frizzante-style sparkling wine: small, gentle bubbles.

Cold fermented in stainless steel for 7-9 months, it pairs well with light dishes, fresh cheeses, and vegetables.

Food pairings:

  • Camembert, ricotta, mozzarella
  • Stir fry dishes (not spicy)
