National White Wine Day is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a glass of this very versatile drink. White wines make for great aperitifs before a meal, a suitable companion to fish or white meat dishes, and a great accompaniment to dessert. So, whether it is a Pinot Gris or a Chardonnay, National White Wine Day is here!
Welcoming our 2021 Sass Estate Pinot Gris into the tasting room line up!
Fruit from our estate Wild Winds Vineyard, and our first single-vineyard Pinot Gris since 1998. Aromas of fall russet apple, pear and pie spice open on the palate and finish with a little racy citrus. Fresh, bright fruit with mineral complexity. Fermented cold in stainless steel.

It’s morel season, so we made morels in a white-wine cream sauce and paired it with a Sass Chardonnay. And you can too, cheers!
Morels in white-wine cream sauce
• 2 lbs morels
• 4 tbsp unsalted butter
• 2 shallots, finely chopped
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• kosher salt
• freshly ground black pepper
• 1 1/2 cups white wine
• 2 cups heavy cream
•. 1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
• 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
• 1 lb medium shell pasta like Conchiglie
• 1 cup finely grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
Rinse or soak morels.
Sauté shallots and garlic in butter until soft. Add morels and salt and pepper to taste. Add wine and cook until almost all the liquid is gone.
Add 1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth. Add heavy cream. Add fresh thyme and bring to a simmer for 30 minutes stirring until sauce is well mixed.
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water, add cooked pasta to the sauce and add Parmesan while mixing the sauce and pasta. Garnish with extra thyme and Parmesan.
Bud break! All winter long, grapevines stood lifeless and bare, but as the temperature rises and the days lengthen, they are suddenly bursting with vitality. They draw on the energy they’ve stored deep within their trunks and roots through the winter to push out the first green leaves of a new growth cycle.
