Freshly Landed Pinot Grigio

NEW Italian Pinot Grigio Exclusive summer offer – under $10 a bottle


$ 50

The world has gone crazy for the pure flavors and thrilling refreshment of Pinot Grigio. With its cool alpine breezes and abundant sunshine, northern Italy’s Veneto region is where the revolution began. It’s the grape’s original heartland and still the source of the most crowdpleasing, breezy Pinot Grigio on the planet – as you’ll taste. On the trail of the freshest Pinot Grigio Sentiero dei Pini is named after a spectacular and precious vineyard (shown above). It’s approached via a spiralling path lined with pine trees (the wine’s name means ‘trail of the pines’) and was a great vantage point for advancing Roman legions. Today it’s occupied by Pinot Grigio vines that yield a wine that’s as fresh as an alpine stream. This is classic northern Italian Pinot Grigio, brimming with sliced lemon and green apple flavors. Minerally, zingy and delicious on its own or alongside seafood linguine. Served today with a fresh $50 savings.
