We’re Releasing Our Pinot Gris This Saturday
Most people have tried a glass of Pinot Grigio – although for some, that glass was the last, as the light, crisp Italian wine isn’t for everyone.
But its French and Alsatian brethren – the Pinot Gris – has a big personality, a deep flavor and large mouthfeel where Pinot Grigio does not. Both wines are made using the same grape, but when it is made in the French and Alsatian style, it doesn’t have quite so much in common with its fruity counterpart.
This Saturday, we’ll release our own 2021 Pinot Gris, which is a classic take on the variety and came out deliciously – according to both our guests and our winemaker.
One of the best parts about our Pinot Gris is that it’s a versatile food wine that goes with an abundance of dishes. This Saturday, we’ll showcase just that as we pair it with Flammekuchen, the ancient Alsatian take on pizza made with fresh cheese, thinly sliced onions and bacon; and Choucroute, pork and sausages simmered in sauerkraut and seasonings like bay leaf and caraway. We’ll also share recipes of these dishes, so you can make them at home yourself to pair with your 2021 Pinot Gris.
Although many Pinot Gris cases have been previously reserved by our subscribers, we still have some cases and bottles available for sale – as long as you don’t wait too long.
