Winexpert Classic Pinot Grigio is a classic from Italy! The nose has a pronounced, refreshing citrus character with a back note of juicy peach. The mouth feel is crisp green apple with citrus qualities and the overall sensation delightfully lingers through a good finish. Begins to show harmony and balance after a few months and is usually consumed within a year. Serve lightly chilled as an aperitif or with light chicken, fish, or pork dishes. Works well with most Asian foods.

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.
Italy is an ‘Old World’ growing region making a variety of styles of wine. Famous for the white Pinot Grigio grape and of course its reds including Amarone, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and others. Of course Italian wines pair very well with Italian foods.

Typically lighter in colour and have lighter tannins. May have residual sugar.
No oak is present as is the case for most whites, rosés and light, fruity reds.
