Estancia Estates got their start in the 1980′s when founded Augustin Huneeus purchased the former Paul Mason vineyard in Soledad, California. Since then, they have been consistently honing their craft and expanding their vineyards. The Estancia Pinot Grigio is a great example of the wines Estancia is producing today. You can usually find a bottle for around $10 or a little more at most grocery stores around the country.
The Estancia Pinot Grigio is made exclusively of grapes from cool climate vineyards. This leads to grapes with more concentrated flavor. That comes through in the wine itself with the strong flavors of lemon and apple that shine through with just a bit of acidity on the finish. At 13.5% abv, this is a wine you can enjoy at any time of the day.
I have always enjoyed the wines produced by Estancia Estates, and the Estancia Pinot Grigio is no exception. Whenever I need a moderately priced bottle of white wine to share with friends or to pair with a nice seafood dinner, I know I can rely on the Estancia Pinot Grigio.
