It’s no secret that the Willamette Valley produces some of the world’s best Pinot Noirs. But the valley is also home to one varietal that’s still relatively under wraps, at least here in the U.S. The Melon de Bourgogne is abundantly grown in France, but scarce on our shores. Luckily for us, Oregon and Washington are the only states that produce it consistently. The dry, white wine is clean and crisp, and goes terrifically with seafood. Best of all, it’s available in our neck of the woods! And one of our favorites comes from Helioterra. Part of the SE Wine Collective, Helioterra is a small, artisan winemaker. And in this case, the best things do come in small packages.
