High note aromatics of Honey Crisp apples, Bartlett pear and green papaya mingle with scents of toasted almonds and coconuts. The wine spreads across the palate generously with a rich texture that finds a little verve from bright acidity and freshness from fermentation in stainless steel.
Foris Vineyards Pinot Gris
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.
