“It’s hard to find good wine that doesn’t break the bank. So, when I find wine that drinks like a single vineyard Russian River Pinot for less than a third of the cost, it’s a no-brainer – I buy it by the case. The Pinot Project’s Pinot Noir (sourced from undisclosed high-quality vineyards in Sonoma County, Monterey and Central Coast), ‘Chard Project’ Chardonnay (from undisclosed high-quality vineyards in Sonoma, Russian River Valley and Monterey) and the brand-new Rosé (made from Pinot Grigio grapes in Veneto, Italy) are each wines that give tremendous ‘bang for the buck.’ Ray Isle, Executive Wine Editor at Food & Wine Magazine, described a prior release of Pinot Project as a ‘$12 Pinot that actually tastes like Pinot is like a mythical creature — rumored but rarely seen.’ He praised its ‘character of classic Russian River Valley wines at a third (or less) the price.’

All three of today’s wines are under $12 a bottle and are made from fruit sourced from some of the top vineyards in California. To keep the price affordable, the exact vineyards are on the DL and the well-known winemakers involved remain anonymous. All so you can get great California Pinot and Chardonnay at a fraction of what it normally would cost. These three wines make great ‘house wines’ – perfect for all those summer parties. Buy a case of each and enjoy poolside!” – Glen Knight, The Wine House

The Pinot Project Pinot Noir
One of Food & Wine's Top Ten Wines Under $20!
From the Winery: The Pinot Project Pinot Noir is handcrafted from high quality Sonoma County, Monterey, and Central Coast vineyards. The diversity in soil and climate from these AVAs contributes to depth in character, balance, and pristine fruit. The grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness and then destemmed in order to express bright fruit flavors and maintain freshness. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, and 20% of the blend is aged for 5 months in French oak. The Pinot Project rests for 6 months in bottle before release.
Region: California
Variety: Pinot Noir

The Pinot Project ‘Chard Project’ Chardonnay
From the Winery: The CHARD PROJECT is handcrafted from fine California Chardonnay grapes coming from a variety of AVA’s including Sonoma, Monterey, and the Russian River Valley. The wine is about half stainless-steel fermented and half barrel fermented with partial malolactic. A portion of the blend is aged on the lees, and the final blend spends 5 months in 10% new French oak. This combination gives The Chard Project a rich, lovely mouthfeel. Pure CHARD aromas and flavors – fresh apples and citrus, and kissed with a touch of oak.

The Pinot Project began in 2009 with a vision: a wine for the palate, the pocket, and the people. Renowned wine importer Michael Skurnik called on his experiences in the vineyards and cellars of Northern California to craft a silky, fruit-forward, and harmonious Pinot Noir. Since then, The Pinot Project has taken the wine world by storm.

Mission accomplished! The Pinot Project has accomplished its goal of being one of the greatest wine values in the world; with delicious numbers coming out of California and Italy. After the success of the Pinot Noir, the brand has added a California Chardonnay called “The Chard Project,” a Pinot Project Pinot Grigio from Italy, and the latest addition, a delicious Rosé!
