Ex Nihilo Pinot Gris
Juicy and crisp, this wine displays notes of pineapple, citrus, mango and passion fruit. Well balanced with a delicate, lingering finish of ripe tropical fruits and spice.
On their first holiday together to Napa Valley and the Bay area, Jeff and Decoa came across the sculpture of Ex Nihilo at an art gallery in San Francisco. They immediately fell in love with the carving of Ex Nihilo and its translation, a Latin word meaning 'out of nothing.' Frederick Hart’s original Ex Nihilo, depicting creation, adorns the west façade of the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC. Jeff and Decoa decided at that moment that Ex Nihilo would be the perfect name for the winery that they had discussed and dreamed of having. Jeff felt that the name would suit their winery, as it would have to be created from nothing, with respect to their pocket book.
Food Pairing Notes
This easy drinking, off-dry wine is best enjoyed with fresh cheeses, grilled chicken and pork.
