Skin-Contact Pinot Gris | Swick Wines | "Zero Point Zero Gris" | Willamette Valley, OR | 2021
Joe Swick wants his wine to be raw and naked! Lots of acidity and freshness. No conventional additives. Just grapes and (sometimes) a very small amount of SO2 for bottle stability.
Joe works with traditional varieties but also experiments with lesser known grapes like Verdelho, Melon de Bourgogne and Touriga Nacional.
What ends up in the glass? Bright energy, freshness, and a unique representation of cool climate terroir. Each vintage brings a new vibe!
