Traditional old-world style fermentation in primarily neutral oak barrels showcases the characteristics of the own-rooted Abiqua Wind Vineyard Pinot Gris planted in 1978 on a steep hillside of the Cascade foothills. 20% new Hungarian oak was used to impart a unique texture and spice component. We began calling this wine the “Will, I am it” blend after finding out that we are not allowed to put the Willamette Valley appellation on the bottle due to some quirky regulations about our being a California winery making a wine from Oregon grapes. Not to be deterred, we use this nickname to pay homage to the grapes’ origin while complying with regulations. Read about our journey to Oregon here. This crisp but delicate pinot gris is excellent for sipping in the warm months, or as a complement to a light meal. 1488 bottles produced in our off-grid Humboldt County, California winery.
