When the temperature reaches into the 90’s, even habitual Pinot Noir drinkers might need something more refreshing…  Sunset Magazine recommends our crisp 2013 Pinot Blanc:

“We never dismiss a good gin and tonic.  But it’s entirely possible to enjoy a nice class of wine when the weather gets warm… For white wine, choose crisp over oaky or buttery. Pinot blanc is a great refresher too, like the 2013 produced by Oregon’s Elk Cove Vineyards ($19).  For us, the hotter the weather, the colder we like our white wine.” – Sunset Magazine, July 2014, pg 106

“If you can imagine the promise of wet paint in your house, this is it – followed by delicate peaches and apricots and a teensy bit of sweetness, with ethereal minerality through a long, light finish.” (May 31, 2007)

2008 Pinot Gris Willamette Valley:

Extreme Pairing — “Handcrafted salumi is paired with Elk Cove Pinot Gris 2008 as a Perfect Wine Companion. “Pour a dry Alsatian-style variety…zippy but elegant pink grapefruit and peach get a kick of lemon zest at the end.” (March 1, 2010)

“You could pull this out with almost any food… consistently a good party wine.” (January 31, 2006)
