Good Harbor Receives Recognition From VinePair For Its 2021 Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio by Good Harbor

Good Harbor Vineyards wines continue to earn recognition across the country! Recently, our 2021 Pinot Grigio was featured in VinePair’s “The 13 Best Pinot Grigios for 2022” and was rated a 90. 

VinePair tastings director Keith Beavers explains Pinot Grigio is the second most popular white varietal in the United States. It is named for its grayish-hued skin. In his review of Good Harbor’s vintage, Beavers describes it as being “distinctly a Michigander.” He goes on to explain that the team at Good Harbor Vineyards listened to our land and continue to make wine that needs to be talked about. Today, Good Harbor has one of the largest plantings of Pinot Grigio in the state of Michigan. The rich, intense fruit flavors in the wine are due to us cropping the fruit at a low tonnage per acre.

Our Pinot Grigio is light and fizzy with a great natural acidity, Beavers goes on to describe. When sipping the 2021 Pinot Grigio, your taste buds experience the rich, creamy texture that is a result of careful vineyard management throughout the growing season. This wine would pair great with light pastas, salads, and light meats.

It isn’t just your taste buds that will enjoy this delicious wine variety. Your nose will be overwhelmed with the aromas of ripe pear and lemon rind that come from the first few swirls around the glass. Stick around a little longer and you will be able to pick up hints of the mineral components from the vineyard soil that really help the bottle show the true expression of Pinot Grigio from the Leelanau Peninsula. Beavers finishes his review by saying our Pinot Grigio “might be one of the most refreshing Pinot Grigios around.”

Experience the delicious adventure of our 2021 Pinot Grigio for yourself. It is available to purchase in our tasting room seven days a week or on our website 24/7.
