“The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. I designed a new label reminiscent of this old bottle and created the Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, which is our company’s most recognized offering. Today, Diamond Collection includes 13 varietals, each identified with a brightly colored label. The quality and authenticity of Diamond Collection is extremely important because we are a family company and our name is on the label. As such, you can trust that we’ll always give you the very best.” —Francis Ford Coppola

Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Pinot Grigio is a delicate varietal that can’t withstand too much sun and needs to be picked at precisely the right moment. When it’s just right, it bestows citrus notes, tropical fruit flavors, and pretty floral nuances you don’t find in other white varietals. To show off its personality, we don’t use oak but rather ferment and finish the wine entirely in stainless steel.

VINTAGE NOTES

The early ripening was due to warm weather that transitioned from a very mild winter. Despite the temperatures, our Pinot Grigio grows in an area that experiences fog every morning. The fruit seemed to really enjoy this combination of conditions, lending more minerality to the flavor profile of this vintage. This year’s Pinot Grigio offers a beautiful fragrance, which was preserved by fermenting at a cool temperature, and blending with an aromatic selection of Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy sweet, luscious fruit flavors followed by a crisp, clean finish.
