Celebrate National Wine Day – 2010 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio

2010 Santa Margherita Pinot GrigioI have to be honest and say I am not much of a Pinot Grigio fan but this fares better than most and is the favorite of my daughter (who has great taste).

The 2010 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is a wine grown in the Alto Adige region of Italy which is known for producing the best high quality pinot grigio grapes. It was interesting to learn that the Pinot Grigio grapes are actually the white variety of the red grapes used to make Pinot Noir wines.

This particular wine is pale in color with a fruity aroma reminiscent of citrus, pear and golden delicious apples. It is a dry, crisp and refreshing wine that is perfect to pair with a summer meal. This casual drinking wine is a definite one to stock up on. Serve well chilled.

Food Pairing: Pairs well with fish, chicken, quiche, soufflés, Thai and Chinese dishes as well as soft cheeses, oysters and, surprisingly, pizza.

Price Range: $9.99 – $19
