100% Pinot Blanc

The 2015 growing season was great for a second year in a row. Bud break was three weeks ahead of ‘normal’ and the growing season maintained that lead through to harvest. The summer’s consistently hot days were followed by warm nights and just the right amount of sprinkling rain. The higher than average overnight lows allowed grapes to mature faster without putting stress on the vines, which lets the grapes come together in balance and flavor to produce an excellent wine. Yields were generous and overall quality looked great too. All fruit was hand harvested from September 5th to October 15th, 2015.
The grapes for The Four Graces Pinot Blanc come from our Foley Family Estate vineyard (78%) and Niederberger Vineyard (22%) both in the Willamette Valley.
