2021 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio, Sonoma County
The 2021 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio is created when you take grapes from our vineyards right along the river in cool‐climate Russian River Valley, and ferment them only in stainless steel — a crisp, clean, refreshing white wine.
This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of lemon, lychee, orange blossom, kiwi, nectarine, white peaches, green apple and mangos with a touch of minerality. Full‐bodied and bright at the same time, this Pinot Grigio’s concentrated aromas, flavors and refreshing acidity linger to the finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pinot Grigio is perfect as an apéritif and is ideal to pair with many types of cuisines. Our favorite pairings include dishes such as seafood salad, pan-seared scallops, oysters on the half shell, or entrées with lively and spicy flavors one might find in Asian cuisine.

100% stainless steel
Individual lots of hand-harvested grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed to minimize any color or harsh tannin extraction, then racked to stainless steel tanks for cold fermentation. This wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation, so it retains its bright flavors and crisp acidity. Depth and complexity are enhanced with weekly lies stirring until bottling.
