There is More to Italy than just Pinot Grig-ee-o $250

We have all been there, sitting at a restaurant with a wine list that is as long as a bible

The safe bet Italian dry white, you turn to the waiter or sommelier an order the one wine you recognize “the Pinot Grig-EE-O,” only to see the face of the Sommelier drop with a slight smerk of disappointment and shame. Its ok we know who you are, you like what you like but there is more to Italy than just Pinot Grig-ee-o

You can cheat on Pinot we won’t tell $300

We all love Pinot Noir for its personality and attributes: its gentle touch, its perfume, its elegance, and vitality. But there are times that we lust for something different but still yearn the same character that made us fall head over heels for Pinot Noir.

We have put together a selection of Pinot (esque) varietals that will jump out of the glass and into your hearts.   

Say goodbye to the Monogamy of just the one varietal in your life Its time some speed dating and let a different wine sweep yuo off your feet.
