Sutter Home Pinot Grigio
|Region||California, United States|
|Brand||Sutter Home Family Vineyards|
For our Pinot Grigio, we source grapes from California’s best cool-climate vineyards, where grapes slowly develop layers of concentrated fruit flavors, delicate floral aromas, crisp acidity and a supple texture.
Pinot Grigio from California tends to be more fruit-forward than its Italian counterpart. To enhance our Pinot Grigio’s fresh fruit flavors and delicate aromas, our winemakers do not use malolactic fermentation. The Pinot Grigio is cold-fermented at 50°F and aged entirely in stainless steel tanks
to maintain the wine’s crisp acidity.
Varietal: Pinot Grigio
T.A.: 0.56 g/100ml
RS: 1.40 g/100ml
Sutter Home Pinot Grigio is laid-back and refreshing—the ultimate patio wine. Delicate floral aromas mingle with scents of ripe pear, peach and melon in a most delightful way. Light-to-medium bodied, our Pinot Grigio has a lovely round texture, with tropical fruit and citrus flavors and a vivid, crisp finish. It’s a versatile, engaging partner for many foods.
When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.
But that was just the beginning. Sutter Home began producing Moscato long before it was “cool,” continuously staying one taste bud ahead of the consumer with new varietals such as Bubbly Pink Moscato and Red Moscato. And when “green” was just a color, Sutter Home introduced the wildly popular 187s in environmentally friendly, conveniently sized PET bottles.

Sutter Home continued to reach beyond the bottle by launching one of the first breast cancer awareness programs in 2001. Through the Sutter Home for Hope® program, the company has raised nearly $1 million dollars toward breast cancer awareness and research. Then in 1990, the Build a Better Burger® recipe contest was born, demystifying the wine experience by pairing America’s favorite everyday meal with its favorite wine brand—Sutter Home. And with an exciting $25,000 grand prize, it continues to bring together burger and wine enthusiasts every year.
With a fresh new label, Sutter Home continues to reflect the evolution of the brand and its consumers. With over 20 different varietals to choose from in the Sutter Home portfolio, there’s a wine to suit every mood and every palate. We can’t wait to taste what’s next.
