When Steve Clifton first launched Palmina in 1995, he only made red wine. At that time, the only white grapes available that were recognized as Italian in Santa Barbara County were Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio). Having worked in restaurants for many years, Steve promised himself he was not going to make another Pinot Grigio that consumers viewed as "a water substitute." What sets Palmina's Pinot Grigio apart is its texture and flavors, a result of both Steve's meticulous farming practices and winemaking style. 

TASTING NOTES

Tasting Notes
A very “pretty” wine, this year’s Pinot Grigio has beautiful aromas of lychee, passion fruit, lemon curd and Kafir lime. The palate is a perfect balance of creamy texture with a balance of noticeable acidity. The wine finishes with a clean “lemon drop” finish that lingers pleasantly.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Food Pairing Notes
The dry acidity of the wine makes it a classic food wine. Creamy pasta dishes such as risotto and rich seafood recipes will be a great companion to this wine. However, it is also a beautiful "patio wine" during the warm days of summer and will pair well with cured meats like salami, crab cakes, and grilled fish.
