The 2019 growing season started later than usual in many California wine regions. A wet spring followed by cool temperatures allowed the grapes to mature gradually. Cool temperatures continued throughout the growing season resulting in longer hang time and lower sugar yields. Vintners are praising the full flavors, fresh acidity and superb balance of the 2019 vintage. We harvested all of the grapes at nighttime to ensure cold fruit at the time of pressing. Harvesting took place on September 16th, 2019. To maintain freshness and preserve the distinct characteristics of the grapes, we minimized exposure to the air. Aiming to create a crisper, fresher style, we fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel.
Pinot Grigio is a classic Italian white wine varietal that we are excited to add to our Sebastiani appellation tier of wines. Our 2019 Pinot Grigio comes from the Morning Sun Vineyard located in the Sonoma Valley on Sonoma Mountain.
