Jovino is Willamette Valley specific and only served at fine restaurants in select National and International markets. Joe crafted the Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris for the Jovino label to be extremely food-friendly, well-balanced, rich, yet elegant.
The fruit for Jovino wines are sourced from Joe Dobbes’ estate vineyard, Sea Breeze Vineyard, as well as a variety of vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Jovino wines are available nationally at fine dining restaurants.
The Jovino Pinot Gris displays classic Oregon Pinot Gris aromas of pear and green apple balanced with ripe, floral peach and banana. Zesty lemon peel, green mango and apple keep the palate crisp and light with a long finish while ripe Asian pear and honey flavors fill the mid-palate and balance the body. Stainless steel fermentation focuses the aromas and flavors of this multi-vineyard blend of Pinot Gris on bright fruit that represents Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
Grapes for the Pinot Noir are hand-picked at peak maturity from select vineyards located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley AVA. At the winery, fruit from each vineyard is separately fermented, pressed, aged in French Oak barrels and then blended. The Jovino Pinot Noir yields elegant, approachable tannins, ripe berry fruit flavors and complex aromas of dried and preserved fruits. This Pinot is balanced, ready to drink and does not require cellar time.
