  Clos du Bois didn’t start small and build up like many other wineries - it started with a bang. When it produced its first vintage in 1974, it already had 520 acres under vine in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. When Frank Woods was coming up with the name for his winery, he thought of “Woods Winery,” obviously named after himself, but his children had something else in mind. They were taking French at the time, and instead of “Woods Winery,” they thought of “Clos du Bois,” which loosely translates to “enclosure in the woods.” Obviously the name stuck, and Clos du Bois was born. Since then, Clos du Bois has come a long way. From 520 acres, the winery has expanded to 925 acres of their own, along with many partnerships with other wineries. Instead of partnering with a few, large vineyards, the winery works with many small- and medium-sized growers across numerous appellations. Most of the grapes it purchases from other vineyards are from Sonoma County, but some come from Coastal California as well. Erik Olsen, their current winemaker, joined in June 2003, and has since taken those grapes and made them into very well-received wines. Read less

Floral aromas - green apple and peach. Mellow and fruity flavors, attacks strong but backs off on the finish.

Tropical fruits, strawberry, soft acidity, dry and lemony on the release. Nice balance and roundness.

WINEMAKER NOTESThe color of pale silver straw, this Pinot Grigio is full of white peach, melon, pink grapefruit and delicate floral notes. Upon tasting, it has a vibrant, lively acidity surrounded by bright citrus flavors of lime zest, grapefruit and stone fruit with hints of minerality and a long crisp finish. FOOD PAIRINGSThis crisp Pinot Grigio is a perfect match for Asian food, especially anything infused with garlic, and coconut-milk-based curries. It is also a delicious pairing with raw fish, oysters, mussels and clams.Winemaker: Gary SittonVarietal Composition: 100% Pinot GrigioAppellation: CaliforniaAcid/pH: 6.1g/L / 3.1Residual Sugar: 2.4g/LAlcohol: 13.0%Aging: Stainless Steel

Our Classics Pinot Grigio has a shimmering silver, slight yellow hay color. Its scents of melon, grapefruit zest, lime and green apple are fresh and vibrant. On the palate the aromas are mirrored with flavors of melon, green apple, lime, and grapefruit that are medium bodied and followed by a long-lasting crisp, clean finish. A "classic" example of this popular varietal. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
