The Kautz family has been promoting and working with sustainable viticulture for over 35 years. Crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation are used throughout the vineyards to improve the quality and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed, as well as the placement of owl and wood duck boxes around the vineyards and ponds to help preserve the surrounding habitats. This Pinot Grigio comes from soils that are sandy loam and well-drained allowing the wonderful ripeness to come through to the grapes. The wine is aged in stainless steel.
This Pinot Grigio is lovely as a chilled aperitif or paired with a variety of mild cheeses, fleshy fish such as cod or sole meuniere. It is a great companion to baked or grilled chicken and fresh salads. Vegetarian friendly.
