One of our favorite Willamette Valley producers is branching out of the pinot noir norm with this gently sweet porch-pounder that will remind you of a crisp summer breeze. Like many great American viticultural stories, the foundation for Montinore Estate began when Carlo and Rosa Marchesi immigrated to the United States from Northern Italy. They passed down their passion for wine and land to their grandson, Rudy Marchesi, who made and sold wine on the East coast until he fell in love with Oregon and moved his family across the country. Fast forward, Rudy's daughter Kristin Marchesi now presides over the estate carrying on the family tradition of land stewardship. Rudy remains active as Partner working alongside the winery’s new Viticulturist, Karen Peterson, to continue their long-established organic and biodynamic farming practices across multiple vineyards. With just a touch of sweetness, Borealis is the perfect pairing to a bold dish with a hint of heat. Whether you are thinking curry, pad thai or take-out general tso's, this is the bottle to elevate any dish.
