Spoiler alert: Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are one and the same. Oregon law restricts its wineries from using the Pinot Grigio designation. (Don’t ask.) Now that this is out of the way, just know that – no matter what you call it – Ponzi’s version of this universally-loved white wine is a perennial hit of the party, year in and year out. (And no matter the time of year, although its warm weather affinity is obvious.) Winemaker Luisa Ponzi certainly has a flair for capturing every scintillating morsel Pinot Gris is capable of imparting. Luisa is equally capable of describing it in mouth-watering detail: “Aromas of guava, rose, white tea with an accent of wintergreen or spruce needle precede the textured palate laced with ginger spice, white pepper and peach. The finish is fresh and bright, leaving a trail of lime zest and poached pear.”
