Sass Winery is located in the South Salem Hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Sass Winery produces small amounts of handcrafted, high-quality Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rose of Gamay Noir. Winemaker Jerry Sass, inspired by wines his father made from Finger Lakes grapes in western New York, founded the winery in 1996, believing in natural, non-invasive winemaking. Today we make wine from vineyards that are naturally and sustainably dry-farmed, celebrating every small part of each vineyard’s rich ecosystem. 2022 Pinot Gris – Fruit from Yakima Valley in Washington. Aromas of fall russet apple, pear, and pie spice open on the palate and finish with racy citrus. Fresh, bright fruit with mineral complexity. Fermented cold in stainless steel.
