2020 Sebastiani Pinot Grigio, Russian River Valley
Our 2020 Pinot Grigio is a pale yellow color in the glass, opening with fresh notes of apricot, Asian pear, apple and white flowers. The palate offers bright acidity and crisp flavors of stone fruits, green pear and kiwi with a soft, round finish. - Mark Beaman, Winemaker

We harvested all of the grapes at nighttime to ensure cold fruit at the time of pressing. Harvesting took place on August 27 - September 18, 2020. To maintain freshness and preserve the distinct characteristics of the grapes, we minimized exposure to the air. A small amount (11%) of the wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels for four months, adding a soft, round quality to an otherwise crisp and refreshing wine.
Pinot Grigio is a classic Italian white wine varietal that we are excited to include in our Sebastiani appellation tier of wines. The fruit for our 2020 Pinot Grigio comes from the cooler climate Russian River Valley.
