    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vin Gris is the Burgundian name for a delicate pink wine made from Pinot Noir. Ours is a vin gris saigné, a wine made from juice "bled" from the Pinot Noir tanks before the fermentations begin.

    Grapes which come in from vineyards where yield was slightly higher than normal become candidates for saigné. Removing juice has the effect of concentrating what remains in the tank – less liquid, but the same amount of skins, and therefore, color and tannin.

    We take the juice we've run off – it's pale pink and very tasty – and put it into older French oak barrels to ferment.

    The Vin Gris finishes malo-lactic in barrel and after a modest amount of barrel age the result is a dry, complex, flavorful wine.

    The dumb name comes later.
