Volcanic Hills Pinot Gris
This dry, un-oaked Pinot Gris is pale straw in color with aromas of Anjou pear, apple skin, citrus and mineral with notes of floral and spice. The palate is very fresh, with a blend of pear, apple and rounding out with a lemon/mineral citrus finish. Pinot Gris is also known as Pinot Grigio (in Italy) - it’s the same grape, but the difference is the style of wine making. When called Pinot Gris, it may be oaked or un-oaked but when called Pinot Grigio it is usually un-oaked.
Since the 1960s it was Sarwan Gidda’s dream to grow grapes that would produce world-class wines. This all began when his father, Mehtab Gidda, came to Canada from a small town in East Punjab, India. Having just $5 in his pocket and not a single word of English in his vocabulary, the dream of a better life began in 1958, when he settled in the Land of Wonder –the Okanagan Valley
