2017 Hans & Lena Pinot Gris

In January 1929, Hans & Lena Winter left their homes in Hannover and boarded a ship to immigrate to the United States. They eventually settled in the Dundee Hills of Oregon in 1961, purchasing the land we work today. We celebrate their courage and foresight as we share this wine with you. This dessert wine highlights our vineyard's ability to achieve exceptional ripeness while maintaining balance and freshness. This wine highlights flavors of honey, wildflowers and pear with a sweet finish.
