Throughout the next week or so, I am going to be featuring Oregon Pinot Gris. When most people think of Oregon, they tend to think about Pinot Noir. While they do produce an excellent style of Pinot Noir, the region also produces outstanding Pinot Gris.
Pinot Gris is the second largest grape varietal grown in Oregon and I feel it is generally overlooked and underappreciated. It is extremely food friendly and often full of complex flavors. A group of wineries joined together to form a group that is helping to put Oregon Pinot Gris on the map and I happily accepted the opportunity to taste through some of their wines. So, stay tuned for some delicious Pinot Gris and check out www.oregonpinotgris.org for more info!
