Chehalem Pinot Gris, Three Vineyard Willamette Valley, Oregon, 2011
Estate grown. Beautiful grapes in all 3 sites. Our great joy in making wine at Chehalem flows from playing with our three distinct estate vineyards: Ridgecrest, Stoller and Corral Creek. Each reflects a special terroir and together they keep us filled with a feeling of endless possibility. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we did making it. - Harry Peterson-Nedry and Mike Eyres, Winemakers. Oregon certified sustainable wine.
