What’s In My Glass? Portlandia Pinot Gris

////

Portlandia is not just a great show anymore – it’s a winery producing some award winning wines! I picked up a bottle of this very hip looking wine and opened it on a beautiful summery evening. I loved the golden color and crispness throughout. Oregon Pinot Gris is truly delicious and a perfect grape to be grown here.

WINEThe 2013 Portlandia Pinot Gris was such a treat! Very true to Oregon style, I got flavors of crisp green apples and fall pears, with a hint of meyer lemon (not too much citrus – just right!). Produced in Dundee by winemaker Jody Thoet, this wine really stands out in terms of its quality and its mission to produce nicely priced Oregon varietals. I loved that the grapes were sourced from vineyards all over the state (from Willamette and Rogue Valley specifically). Sourcing from many vineyards creates a wine that truly represents our gorgeous state.

I found this at my local grocery store, although you can find it at many places including their website. Enjoy with fresh seafood, grilled chicken, or on it’s own. Cheers!
