What’s In My Glass? Torii Mor Pinot Gris

When cruising through downtown McMinnville, Oregon there are banners that line the road that say Torii Mor Winery. This is part of what inspired me to check out their tasting room! While I will say I had heard of this winery before, until I made the trek out to their tasting room I hadn’t had the pleasure of trying any of their varietals. I am so glad I took the time to check out their beautiful facility. They even make their own brandy from their own Pinot Noir, which is out of this world!

Located in a renovated mother in law suite, this quaint tasting room had a fun feel to it. The name “Torii Mor” translates to “Gateway to the Earth” in Japanese and the whole tasting room had a theme that matched this.  The other cool feature of this tasting room was the sensory wall! It was full of tiny jars that had various flavors that you might find in wines. Pineapple, butter, and peaches were a few of my favorite scents. This is great for those trying to work on their wine tasting skills.

The sensory wall – such a cool idea!

The 2014 Torii Mor Pinot Gris was super delicious. Ripe pears, crisp citrus notes, and tropical flavors filled my senses. This wine would pair perfectly with seafood, or just by itself! The best part is this wine sells for only $18. For an Oregon Pinot gris in this area, and this good – this is a steal. Cheers!
