Story

+

Pinot G – Gris or Grigio – the choice is ultimately up to the winemaker. Gris is the more 'masculine' style – richer, spicier and and higher in alcohol, made famous in France. Grigio is the more 'feminine' style – crisper, more mineral, fresher and lighter, made famous over the border in Italy. The Lovers from the Tarot deck represent love, harmony, relationships and choices, embodying the duality between Gris and Grigio and the powerful choice the winemaker has in which style to create.
