A blend of three Alsatian grape varieties, Pinot Blanc 56%, Riesling 31%, and Gewurztraminer 13%. The individual components were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness and vibrancy that our unique alpine climate offers. The nose offers up apple blossoms and a hint of citrus while pears and a touch of stone fruits come through on the palate. The lively acidity keeps it focused and very food friendly, right through to its just-shy-of-dry finish.
Foris Vineyards Fly Over White
Founded by Ted and Meri Gerber, Foris Winery and Vineyards is family-owned and family-managed. A graduate of Cal State Hayward in 1969, Ted studied political science and public administration. During his college years, he also developed a passion for making homemade wine. In 1971, Ted and Meri purchased hillside acreage in southern Oregon’s remote Illinois Valley with the specific intention of growing grapes. Starting from scratch, they built a house, bought the land that is now Gerber Vineyards, and began planting grapes.
