Adelsheim Pinot Gris, Oregon, 2006
Pinot gris originated in Burgundy
Like the other members of the Pinot family it has had a long history all over Europe. In recent times, versions from Alsace and northern Italy have been the best known. Oregon winegrowers introduced Pinot gris to New World viticulture and in 44 years the variety has become the principal white wine of Oregon. Adelsheim Vineyard was one of the very first producers of this variety outside of Europe. With this wine, our 28th vintage, our experience shows – we’ve long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the “Oregon style”.
