Enjoy the taste of Italy with Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio!
Santa Margherita pioneered the modern winemaking methods of Pinot Grigio, and are proud to be known as a benchmark of quality and innovation for the category. In 1960, their winemaker was inspired by traditional sparkling wine vinification techniques to ferment this wine without skin contact. Driven to capture the delicate fruit and floral notes in this wine, he realized that by moving away from the then-standard “Ramato” method, these precious aromas and flavors could be preserved as they were meant to be tasted. Let the clean, dry, and versatile Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio that inspired an entire generation of Italian white wines inspire your next picnic, dinner party, or spontaneous get-together.
A clean, lovely aperitif to start any food occasion. It goes wonderfully with fresh cheeses, seafood, pasta, and rice dishes, as well as white meats and soufflés.
