The first blocks of Chrismont were transformed from tobacco to grape vine in the 1980s. As a mutation of the deep purple Pinot Noir and the greenish yellow Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio runs a spectrum of fruit characters that vary according to terroir and clime. Fruit is vinified in chilled fermenters to maintain varietal freshness, upon completion and following a term of repose for clarification, components are assembled along with a small percentage of reserve wine for added complexity and extra interest.
