A to Z Wineworks was started in 2002 by four friends, Oregon wine industry veterans, Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl. Francis (Chehalem). The two couples worked in the Hatcher's kitchen to build the original blend honored by Food & Wine Magazine as the Best American Pinot Noir under $20. Recognition for their A to Z wines with dependable quality and great value continued and production grew. In 2006, the group welcomed another Oregon wine veteran, Michael Davies, as winemaker, and partnered with Gregg Popovich (Coach of the San Antonio Spurs) to buy REX HILL Vineyards and Winery (established in 1982). A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards across the state always offering assistance for sustainability certification that the group expects to be achieved within three years of partnering. Today, A to Z has two viticulturists on staff and uses biodynamic principles to farm all owned or long-leased vineyards. Diverse sourcing across the state mitigates regional weather difficulties and adds complexity and depth to the one wine of each variety that is blended in any vintage. Additionally, A to Z has more collective Oregon winemaking experience than any other winery, experience that can make a difference in difficult vintages. A to Z remains true to the dual mission of offer Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonny and Pinot Gris that deliver the Essence of Oregon. A commitment to excellence is matched by a belief in fair value and sustainability in business as well as farming and a drive to offer the highest quality for the best value. A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir has twice been named to Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines of the yar; A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris is a perennial Best Buy; and A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is America's Best Selling Oregon Chardonnay. A to Z is also a certified B Corporation. Read less

A to Z Wineworks is a partnership of two winemaking families who actually did grow up in the wine industry, unlike the corporate types who abandoned their careers after watching the movie "Office Space" and tried to become winemakers. The erratic Oregon weather of the 2004 vintage proves that these original winemaking families hold the key to Pinot Gris. The presence of juicy green apple here is undeniable, and it is accented by a touch of honey to define the slight creaminess of the wine. Lively acidity and stimulating freshness make this wine a wise choice over any Pinot Grigio.

Displaying fresh melon, apricots, and yellow plums, the light to medium-bodied 2004 Pinot Gris is a vivacious, flavorful wine filled with citrus fruits and almonds. This wonderful value should be drunk over the next 12 months.

There are 9,300 cases of the excellent 2003 Pinot Gris. This fabulous value displays an engaging nose of honeyed floral scents. Lushly-textured, suave, and packed with sweet minerals, this well-made medium-bodied wine is ideal for drinking over the next 12-18 months.

Bright and lively, with juicy nectarine and subtle spice flavors. Lingers gently on the dry finish. Drink now.

OregonA to Z Oregon Pinot Gris is a delightful white wine from the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 2002, A to Z Wineworks is Oregon's fastest growing winery. Their business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon's best wine values by concentrating on their core competencies of acquisition, blending and marketing. We especially appreciate the company's slogan, "Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices!" This 2010 Pinot Gris was rated a Best Buy and given an 88-point score by Wine & Spirits. The 2010 Oregon Wine Awards judged it Double Gold, Best of the Best. Not bad for an everyday white wine gem!The 2010 A to Z Pinot Gris leads with bright aromas of tropical fruits (lemon, lime, lychee, mango, passion fruit and kiwi) as well as melon, ginger, lemongrass and wet stone. Succulent and juicy on the attack, the mid-palate is drenched with peach, spiced pear, baked apple, quince, hibiscus, white flower and mineral flavors. Malolactic fermentation was intentionally blocked to retain freshness and purity of fruit. On the finish, the acidity wraps up the wine with a clean, fresh palate and lasting impression of a wine with great purity and typicity balanced by some richness and depth. Enjoy A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris with baked salmon, grilled chicken, risotto, pasta and mild cheeses.

Smooth, polished and appealing for its pear and nectarine aromas and flavors, remaining delicately balanced and refreshing through the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2009.

Bright primary aromatics of minerals and fruit: kiwi, lychee, grapefruit, passion fruit, and nectarine. The promise of juicy fruit is met on the palate with perfectly ripe flavors and great acidity. The very long finish is clean and soft.
