This grappa is distilled from the pomace of 100% Oregon pinot noir grapes. The careful selection of the sourced pomace from pinot noir grapes is important as the pressing of the grapes must be done gently in order for there to be something to ferment. This is sold in both 375ml and 750ml sized bottles.

Tasting Notes

"The grappa is clear and vibrant, but the aroma is full of red fruit leaning more on the cherry notes. Much like their pinot grigio grappa, there's a slight bitterness on the palate, but the fruit lingers like it has all the time in the world."
