Pinot Noir, oh gosh! What a struggle !!! There are only a few grapes on the vine, very few, but quantity is not everything. The vineyard may not give us many grapes but we truly do believe in it. The road ahead is long and winding, but the challenge is the “salt” of life. A wine that wants to be “horizontal”, easy to match, which focuses on the fruit and the essence of the varietal, to be drunk in pleasure, perhaps served at a slightly lower temperature rather than a traditional red one.
