The 2016 vintage was defined by its early start, moderate temperatures and overall high quality. The season began with a warmer than average winter which led to an early spring and bud break. Temperatures remained warm yet moderate in the summer months, with no extreme heat spikes. These conditions allowed for even ripening, balanced vines and opulent flavor development. The early start to the growing season and consistently warm summer led to one of the earliest harvests on record. The fruit had smaller berry size and moderate yields, with harvest occurring from September 1st - September 9th, 2016.
The grapes for The Four Graces Pinot Gris are sourced from our Foley Family Estate vineyard as well as Olsen Vineyard in the Willamette Valley.
