Our goal with the Kings Ridge Pinot Gris is to make a more richly textured white wine with lush acidity. We carefully choose vineyards in cool parts of the Willamette Valley that have significant daily temperature swings. We believe this helps to give ripeness and concentration to the fruit while preserving freshness and vibrant acidity.
We harvest our Pinot Gris vineyards in the cool early morning, and then gently press the whole clusters to coax the juice through the skins of the grapes. The Pinot Gris juice undergoes a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is aged on its lees to build weight and body, and is bottled in late winter to preserve the delicate aromatics.
Oregon is a place where opposites shake hands. It is a place where community is built on individual strengths. It is a place where wild, open spaces meet industrial cities and farmlands are full of inspiring artists passionate about their craftsmanship. Investing in the kind of attention to detail that cares more about what goes into the glass than what type of glass it is. We named our company Union to honor these diversities and bring together the spirit and character of Oregon in a way that you can put on your table everyday.
