Pinot gris is usually delicately fragrant and mildly floral with lightly lemon-citrus flavors. Depending upon ripeness at harvest and vinification technique, Pinot gris can be tangy and light, or quite rich, round and full bodied. Made in a certain style, it is one dry white wine that can even age well.
The Oregon Pinot Gris Symposium was first held in 2011 at Oak Knoll Winery in the Willamette Valley. Oregon is the original home of American Pinot gris, which was planted more than 40 years ago. Oregon Pinot Gris is unique and distinctive – a versatile, aromatic, textural white wine, with bright fruit and exceptional balance.
