Winery Notes:
WINEMAKING
100% Pinot Grigio. Whole cluster Pressed, 100% Tank Fermented, Aged Sur Lie for three months, no Malolactic Fermentation. The grapes are harvested at different brix levels to maximize the varietal character and to contribute the best flavor profiles of the varietal from our vineyard sites.

WINEMAKER AND PHILOSOPHY
True to his California winemaking roots, winemaker Robert Lawson is mastering the blend of the old and new world with Pavi Pinot Grigio Italy. Veering in style from traditional Italian Pinot Grigio Pavi Italy has more weight in the palate, giving the wine a robust feel, while keeping the varietal character, resulting in a perfect balance of acidity and citrus flavors.

TASTING NOTES
Grown and produced in the lush region of Fruili-Venezie, Italy, this Pinot Grigio is a perfect compliment to its California cousin, Pavi Napa Valley. This medium bodies and fruity wine is crushed and pressed to ferment cold in order to preserve the delicate aromas of orange blossom, lemon, pear and pineapple flavors. This wine is refreshing, balanced and very food-friendly - a delicious accompaniment to fish, seasonal pasta dishes and chicken or a lovely complement to a hot summer day!
