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.
