Pinot Gris was first introduced into the United States from France by David Lett, who planted Pinot Gris in the North Willamette Valley at The Eyrie Vineyards. Founder Jim Bernau got his first cuttings of Pinot Gris as a result of David's innovative work. Pinot Gris is now Oregon's leading white variety.

On the Nose: The bouquet offers fresh pear, pineapple, grapefruit and honeysuckle.
On the Palate: The wine bursts from the start with round, juicy flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon and jasmine followed by bright acidity that gives the wine freshness for a clean, crisp, lingering finish.
Food Pairings: Our go-to white wine for seafood, enjoy with fresh Dungeness crab, grilled salmon, marinated shrimp or other light fish with a citrus or miso glaze. Also enjoy with poultry like pesto baked chicken or Thai chicken lettuce wraps, seasonal salads and medium cheeses.
