"Wrapped around the cool, western slopes of Sonoma Mountain, Morning Sun
Ranch was once planted to nothing but Italian varietals. Weathered signs still dot
the rows where Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Freisa were once farmed exclusively for
the Sebastiani Family. Most of the vineyard has been grafted over to more
popular varietals like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but a terraced parcel of Pinot
Grigio and a few long rows of Barbera still remain.
Soils a top this idyllic hillside vineyard is primarily volcanic ash. Early ripening
Pinot Grigio vines face the Northern end of Bennet Valley, ironically basking in
the warm afternoon sun.


Harvested at 21.9 brix, the wine was whole-cluster pressed into a mix of neutral
coopers and fermented using native yeasts. Each barrel was stirred daily until
the wine was dry. After 8 months on the lees, we bottled the wine unfiltered. The
end result is a tart, fresh wine about with key-lime, white flowers, and bright
acidity.


Inspired by the dry white wines of the Friuli region in Northern Italy, we believe
this is arguably one of the cleanest expressions of Pinot Grigio from the new
world. The barrels chosen for this wine were originally produced for our Doris
label, so to say this wine has exceeded our expectations would be an
understatement. Each bottle is hand-numbered." - Producer Note
