We sure like it here on Aquidneck Island, and fortunately for Pinot-loving paletes, our Pinot Gris grapes do, too. Nestled along the Sakonnet River, Greenvale’s rich soil and temperate climate make it an ideal place for grapes to grow. The Pinot Grig, or “gray pine cones” got their name because they are reddish-gray in color and grow in tight cluster formation. They are said to be a mutation of the red Pinot Noir grape, and produce very popular light, crisp wines that are best served chilled.
With peaches in season this time of year we thought it would be a tasty experiment to see how we can enjoy them with our wines. This recipe for peach and white wine sorbet by Cassie Johnston will have you stocking up on ingredients!
For many years our Skipping Stone white wine has been our most popular seller. Our customers tell us that they like its balance of sweetness and acidity. That’s also what makes it such a versatile wine. We think cheese pairs with it really well, as well as spicy foods.
Our favorite aspect of Skipping Stone is that it’s unique to Greenvale.
