.Wrights Station Vineyards’ 2020 Pinot Gris

The refreshing wine is loaded with aromas of fruit and spice

Pinot Gris, also called Pinot Grigio in Italy, is a solo star. Grapes are from Lago Lomita Vineyards in the Los Gatos hills—a much-respected source of luscious and well-tended fruit. It’s a versatile white wine that’s easy to like, and Wrights Station 2020 Pinot Grigio ($34) is lovely.

Wrights Station’s Pino Gris is worth every penny. Pinot Gris is loaded with citrus fruits, apples, pears, peaches and spice aromas. Fresh and crisp, it pairs well with chicken, turkey, various cheeses and rich Indian fare. The market is flooded with cheaply made Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio, which should be avoided. It’s well worth spending a bit more and getting a good one.

Each month this year, Wrights Station will spotlight a wine and give a discount of 20%. Check their website to see the featured wine.
