Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer. One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production. Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
Tasted in Oct 2013 and this wine has little fruit, short finish and is dry. Flat/dull, nothing going on here. Nice deep gold color however. My rating 77.
Great mix of fruit flavors. I like the honey and crisp acidity at the finish.
More tart than sweet. Tastes of green apples and grapefruit. Perks the palate. Very refreshing! Not sure if the price is a misprint. I bought this wine for under $20.
External Reviews for Fetzer Pinot Grigio California Valley Oaks
If Americans are crazy about Pinot Grigio, it's due to wines like this that are so fruity delicious and inexpensive. What's not to like about scads of spicy green apples, tart limes, and an exotic umami taste of candied ginger? Drink it with almost anything.
Refreshingly bright, juicy and light-bodied, with floral and herb highlights and ripe citrus and apple flavors. Drink now.
Offers a refreshing medley of melon, citrus and peach flavors. Spicy details give this wine charm, as does the push of ripe flavors on the finish.
Clean and zesty, this is a nice cocktail sipper, with rich flavors of green apples, pineapples, peaches, apricots, vanilla and spice. The honeyed finish is brightened with crisp acidity.
Fresh from the vineyard, this Pinot Grigio from the 2007 vintage is bright and zesty in tart lemon, lime, apple and vanilla flavors, with a sweeter edge of figs. It finishes with a crisp, honeyed aftertaste.

Some wines leave you tingling (with happiness or joy at the flavors).This wine satisfies both dimensions. Fruit-forward in character, withflavors of tropical fruit, apples, pears and a nice orange citrus note,balanced with some minerality and a wonderful round finish you can'tignore. There are hints of mango, pear, orange spice, lemon grass andpineapple on the nose. This Pinot Grigio is clean and fruity, notover-powering, with a crisp acid backbone. There's a reason people likePinot Grigio, and the reasons will all be found in your glass. Enjoy
