What we’re drinking: Elk Cove Pinot Gris

Brynn writes:

I’m bringing up my memories of this wine from last Thanksgiving when I served the Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris as an aperitif before our main course. It was the perfect wine to enjoy withe our selection of fresh cheeses and crackers.

If you’re looking for wine recommendations this year for your Thanksgiving dinner, I would highly recommend buying a bottle or two of this wine to serve your guests before you sit down to the main meal. It is a little pricier than we normally recommend, but hey it’s only Thanksgiving once a year, right?

Here’s what the winery has to say about the wine on its website:

The 2010 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Gris gives sweet and unctuous aromatics while showing crispness on the palate with vibrant citrus and grapefruit. True to Elk Cove Vineyards’ style, a rich mouthfeel leads to a full and satisfying balanced finish. Drink this lovely white wine as an aperitif or with a variety of food pairings from salmon and main-course salads to Asian and Thai influenced dishes.

If you’re looking to go matchy-matchy this year on your Thanksgiving wine offerings, consider pouring the Elk Cove Pinot Noir for your main course to accompany the turkey and its many side dishes.

  1. Didn’t Sogno di Vino start serving Elk Cove Pinot Gris? They’re making my dinners there harder and harder. Trying to choose between the Willakenzie Pinot Blanc and the Elk Cove was bad enough. Then on my last visit they had the PGV.

    Arrrggghhh! So much wine, so little time (and money).

    The Elk Cove winery is a real treat when the roses are blooming.
