This lovely wine from Bayshore is produced from one of the first vineyards in California planted with Pinot Grigio that originally focused on dessert wines. That is until a wine importer, seeing the potential for table wines, used these grapes to launch a line of food-friendly table wines. Gorgeous aromas jump out of the glass and delicious flavors of melon, citrus and tangerine are completed by a refreshing thread of crisp acidity.
Pinot Grigio is one of the ultimate summer wines. It is refreshing, crisp, with loads of fruit flavors that can take a cocktail party or elegant meal to the next level. California is known for Pinot Grigio, and one of the pioneering wineries in California has released their 2013 vintage of Pepi Pinot Grigio. Produced from vineyards in California’s booming Monterey and Sacramento Delta, this Pinot Grigio generously gives flavors of white flowers, pear, and citrus with a clean and refreshing palate. With back to back award winning vintages under Pepi’s belt, this 2013 vintage is going to surely be a crowd pleasing favorite.
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
