100% Pinot Gris
The Klickitat Pinot Gris vines are located on the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains, in Klickitat County, Washington, pushing the boundaries of extreme cool climate viticulture. The vineyard property is composed of 100% red basalt soil composition resulting in low yielding vines that produce intense flavors and layers of complexity. The Klickitat River runs through the property, reflecting sunlight and moderating the temperature - cooling warm days and warming cold nights. The climate at our vineyard is marginal at best.
