Turning Leaf Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio grapes originate from Italy, but Turning Leaf winemakers have discovered there are advantages to harvesting this popular varietal a little closer to home. California climate conditions, especially where Turning Leaf vineyards are located, are ideal for nurturing depth and flavor in Pinot Grigio. Throughout the growing season, a succession of warm days and cool nights prolongs hang-time by slowing down the pace at which Pinot Grigio grapes mature. Additional hang-time gives the fruit greater opportunity to develop character on the vine where it really counts. In addition, Turning Leaf winemakers can readily apply new learning and technologies to the making of their wines, a freedom that has resulted in Pinot Grigio as flavorful as it is refreshing.
