Pinot Grigio (2015)

d'Orsaria

  • Pinot Grigio has become the global synonym of Italian white wine. And in the hills of Friuli, it achieves is maximum expression. Sustainable farming practices in Friuli combined with cooler climates produce a supple wine with full-flavors, balances, and a touch of richness. Tenacious and strong-willed as the bears (‘orso’ in Italian) the family takes its name from, the Orsaria family has been crafting wines since 1949. The logo alone begs for exposure in California, but this unique pinot will take you on a journey right back to the eastern reaches of Italy.
