Pike Road Pinot Gris Willamette Valley
Pike Road Pinot Gris is a white wine from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, USA. The grapes come from various fields in the area, primarily Pike Road's own, but also from selected partners. According to Pike Road, this "multi-vineyard" method produces a more complex wine. They are all picked by hand, gently pressed and cold fermented in steel tanks so that the wine retains as much freshness as possible. Pike Road Wines launched their first bottles on the market in 2016. Behind the venture we find the Campbell family, who planted their first fields in 1974 and at the same time started the now famous winery, Elk Cove. The idea behind Pike Road Wines is to sell high quality wine made from grapes grown exclusively in the Willamette Valley, but at prices that are more affordable than what you normally see in the area. The new initiative is named after the road that meanders through the lush valley and continues deep into the Oregon Coast Range - the mountains that are so important to Willamette Valley's favorable growing conditions. At Pike Road, you have no reservations about buying grapes from other winemakers, as long as the quality is top notch. On the contrary, they want to do their part to ensure that the small farmers and family businesses around Willamette Valley can survive, and in many cases, the Campbell family has had decades of cooperation with these farmers! Therefore, several of the wines are made from both Pike Road's own grapes and batches from selected farmers in the area. They also emphasize that in some cases this "multi-vinyard" method can produce a more complex wine.
