2023 J. Lohr F&G Vineyard Pinot Blanc

The 2023 F&G Vineyard Pinot Blanc is highlighted by aromas of white floral, yellow rose, quince, crushed rock, and pear. These aromas are complemented on the palate by the complex flavors of ripe melon, Meyer lemon, and marzipan with a creamy texture and long finish from fermentation and aging in the large vessels.

The grapes for the F&G Vineyard Pinot Blanc are grown in the sandy, cobblestone-laden soils of the cool and windy Arroyo Seco AVA. These rugged soils keep yields in check and produce fruit with varietal intensity, minerality, and exceptional weight. The long, cool growing season of the Arroyo Seco appellation ensures that texture develops alongside the grapes’ natural bright acidity. The F&G Pinot Blanc is crafted to be a unique, classic expression of the region and the estate.


The 2023 growing season at our sustainably farmed, joint venture F&G Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco was characterized by a very cool early spring, followed by daytime highs in the 80s during the summer that helped fully ripen the grapes. We harvested this vineyard in two picks - the first to enhance the bright acidity that is the Alsatian side of this grape and the second to provide riper, melon flavors and rich texture to extend the finish.
