Staff Pick Notes

What a wine. Sonoma grown, hand farmed, and masterfully crafted. Five days of grape skin contact fermentation give this Pinot Gris a gorgeous copper color, and wow does it go down easy. Dry and endlessly refreshing, it’s a ramato-style wine with notes of Blood orange, apricot, and a pinch of white pepper. Everything Two Shepherds Winery makes is natural and delicious. But this bottle stands out the most to me. Bright acidity, a luscious mouthfeel, addictive drinkability... I literally can't ask for anything more. I bought two bottles the day I first tasted it, and with warm weather finally around the corner, I might need to pick up a couple more. If you can't make it to the Russian River Valley in person, this wine will take you there. Enjoy!
