Coming January 2022. A unique blend of Grillo and Pinot Grigio, this fruit driven wine is a playful balance between freshness and body. Grillo pronounced GREE-lo originated in Sicily and is a more robust alternative to Pinot Grigio. It brings more body to this blend along with floral notes and hints of grapefruit. The Pinot Grigio keeps this wine crisp, offering bright acidity along with notes of cantaloupe and sweet pear on the palate. 30 Labels included.

At home in Sicily—grillo grows well in hotter climates and is known for producing fresh white wines.Think of Grillo as Pinot Grigio's groovy cousin! Like Pinot Grigio it is dry with good acidity but with more body. It shares Pinot Grigio's citrus notes but also has floral and herbal aromas.
Known as Pinot Gris in France, this cousin of the Chardonnay grape is now more readily known as Pinot Grigio (the Italian version). Pinot Gris typically offers good fruit and medium body while Pinot Grigio wines are lively, zippy and crisp. Both are great with a variety of foods and are a great sipper on a hot summer day. Pinot Grigios and Pinot Gris are currently Canada's favourite white wines.
Sicily is the southernmost region in Italy and the largest island on the Mediterranean Sea. It is consistently blessed with bright sunshine, warm temperatures, moderate rainfall, and coastal breezes. This classic Mediterranean climate is described by Sicilian wine producers as a magical place to make wine thanks to the unique geography, climate, and cultural influence.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
Great for food, medium bodied wines typically have alcohol levels below 14% and less oak.
No oak is present as is the case for most whites, rosés and light, fruity reds.
