Pinot Bianco is the Italian name for Pinot Blanc. It is a widely planted grape throughout northeastern Italy primarily in the Friuli region. Monte Volpe’s medal-winning Pinot Bianco comes from 44-year-old vines off the Redwood Valley vineyard in Mendocino County. It is 100% organically grown and one of the only remaining Pinot Bianco sites remaining in the county.

This wine shows intense aromas of fruit and up-front flavors of luscious tropical fruit with a soft echo of peach on the finish. It’s a beautiful wine, fragrant, good acidity and possesses character far beyond a Chardonnay. “The 1997 Pinot Bianco is our best yet,” says winemaker Greg Graziano. Have fun with this wine! Pair it with your favorite poultry, seafood and especially shellfish creations.
