Pinot Grigio Grapes

This is an excellent article on Pinot Noir, and some winemakers who are striving to put it on all of our tables. Having tried some of these, I like what they are doing. Sure, they aren’t spectacular examples of the variety, but they are certainly very drinkable. I wish them all the luck in the world.

From the article:

It starts to feel a bit like unrequited love. What is the Pinot lover to do when the object of affection is so exclusionary, unobtainable? What if, instead of trophy worship, you wanted to make Pinot your house wine, the wine to pour each evening at dinner — without taking out any sub-prime loans? Where are the Pinots for the rest of us?

    That IS a great article. I was given a ‘Wine Spectator Top 100′ for christmas and I just read an article on the A to Z vineyards (that was in a larger article about Oregon wines).
    I totally agree with the premise that you should be able to afford Pinot as an everyday drinking wine. It goes with so much food.

    Glad that you liked it, Steve. I read that issue of Wine Spectator, it had some good stuff. If you get a chance, pick up this month’s issue. It is what they are calling their “Ultimate Buying Guide.” It’s a lot of fun seeing the $20 bottles that are ranked higher than the $80 ones. Now if I can just find a few of those $20 bottles still hanging around on a shelf somewhere…
