Winemaker Alessio Carli Notes
Winery Information
Pietra Santa is a family-run estate in the beautiful Cienega Valley just 25 miles from California’s Monterey Bay. The proximity to the coast provides cooling, maritime breezes and a long growing season resulting in vibrant and flavorful wines. The estate also benefits from granite and limestone soils and is named Pietra Santa or “Sacred Stone” in honor of the unique terroir. The estate’s winemaking history dates back to the 1850s when vines were first planted on the estate. Today, the winery is owned by the Blackburn family. It is their goal to create the best possible wines and continue the tradition of quality winemaking in this special place.

Vineyards/Winemaking
Our Pinot Grigio comes from ...more... grapes grown at the highest elevation on our estate. Morning fog followed by sun and afternoon shade make this an ideal location for growing this varietal. The grapes ripen slowly allowing them to develop balance between rich texture and heady aromas. The wine is stainless steel fermented and bottled young to preserve the crisp acidity and refreshing fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes
This well balanced Pinot Grigio tastes of mangos and passion fruit with hints of citrus. It is wine is crisp, refreshing and ideal for a summer picnic or as an aperitif. Wonderful when paired with Oysters on the half-shell.
