Our 2015 Estate Pinot Gris is light and refreshing, with notes of Asian pear, apple peel, honey, and chamomile. Unlike previous vintages of Poor Farm Pinot Gris, the 2015 vintage was fermented and aged in stainless tanks, preserving the subtle floral aromatics and texture.
Our 2 acre estate vineyard is located on-site at the historic Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, a former poor farm.
Food Pairing Notes
Try our estate Pinot Gris with light, non-aged cheese, oysters, grilled seafood, salads, and light appetizers.
In French, “Pinot” means pinecone, a reference to the shape of the Pinot family’s grape clusters. A mutation of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris (“Gray Pinot”) has reddish-purple skin, thus falling on the color spectrum somewhere between Pinot Noir (“Black Pinot”) and Pinot Blanc (“White Pinot”). Despite its color, it is considered to be a white grape. Although the grape hails from the Alsace region in Northeastern France, it is also commonly found in Germany and Northeastern Italy, where it is known as Pinot Grigio.
