Pecorino Pinot Grigio, Italy 

(Available January 2020) 

Pinot Grigio was originally established as Pinot Gris in

Burgundy and although most famous in Alsace,

France, made its way to Switzerland in the 1300s and

eventually to Northern Italy where Pinot Grigio was

born. Today it is Italy's most popular grape. Pecorino

has a bit of a different history; thought to be extinct in the mid-20th century, it was

rediscovered in the 1980s by a local producer who then took cuttings and propagated them

resulting in this grape's resurgence. Blending Pinot Grigio, the most popular Italian white

wine grape, with the lesser-known Pecorino grape results in a delicate white wine with high

acidity, lemon, lime and honeysuckle flavors, and an elegant floral aroma. Pair with

steamed mussels, seafood risotto and vegetarian spring rolls.
