40 KNOTS PINOT GRIS
British Columbia, Vancouver Island
White, Pinot Gris
Located in Comox, just a stone’s throw from the Georgia Strait, 40 Knots is a magical place where the forces of nature are at play.
Our site is so influenced by wind and a seaside atmosphere (complete with salty air, sea lions, eagles, and playful swallows) that we paid tribute to these elements through the naming of our winery. This unique windswept environment results in, drier leaf canopy that creates an ideal growing environment for vines when combined with plentiful sunshine and warm days.
Vancouver Island’s influences create fresh, crisp, grassy Pinot Gris, with classic peachy, nutty aromas and lively green apple acidity. 40 Knots Pinot Gris is a perfect match for wild BC sockeye salmon, fish tacos, or grilled chicken.
