One weekend in July, my extended family and I visited the Pollak Vineyards here in Albemarle County. Just about everyone was taken back by how good the Pinot Gris was. It was so good, that I decided to give it to a friend for his birthday. The only issue is that my fried lives in Shanghai, China. Fortunately, I had plans to visit him in early August.
When I stopped by the vineyard to pick up a bottle I mentioned that I’d be carrying a bottle to Shanghai. “Take a picture near something famous!” I was asked. So, below you will find a few pictures of the well travelled Pinto Gris and the Shanghai Skyline.
The author and the wine.
Up close and beautiful.
