The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals and the incredible terroir of Northern California.

Tasting Notes

This aromatic white wine opens with aromas of citrus, honeysuckle and fresh melon.


It is medium bodied with silky textures and flavors of apricot, mango, pear and a touch of honey and white pepper. The finish is crisp, refreshing and lengthy.

Vintage Notes: 

The Count identified the Sonoma Valley climate  and soil as the optimal location within the County for growing quality Pinot Gris. We honor his vision with The Count’s Selection Pinot Gris was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small amount in neutral oak. The lees were stirred for the first several months of aging to add depth of flavor without malolactic fermentation.
