Winery Notes:
Kings Ridge wines are the heart of Union Wine Company. Kings Ridge Pinot Gris is a vibrant and textured wine that brings to life the beautiful complexity inherent in the wines of the Willamette Valley. Our ability to incorporate grapes grown solely in the Willamette Valley growing region of Oregon gives Kings Ridge wines their north star.

The 2015 vintage started off with a mild winter which caused bud break to occur very early. The early warm temperatures continued, with flowering occurring in late May to early June in most of the state. Similar to 2014, the summer was warm and dry. As we approached what looked to be like an exceptionally early harvest, the weather cooled off as we entered into September and allowed the flavors to catch up with the escalating sugars. The harvest was bountiful and extremely high quality, with the resulting wines showing generous fruit, intense concentration, and great energy reminiscent of the vintage.
