    Salwey Pinot Gris – Simply Fabulous

    Home Wine Regions German Wine Salwey Pinot Gris – Simply Fabulous by Tim Lemke - Oct 19, 2014 The longer I run this website, the more I find that the wines that interest me the most are the ones nobody reads about. I don’t think it’s that others wouldn’t enjoy them, they’re just unique gems that folks don’t come across every day and therefore aren’t searching for info about them.

      Wine Review: Santa Margherita Valdadige Pinot Grigio 2013

      Edible Arts - - 6 readers - Pinot Grigio is the most popular imported white grape variety in the U.S. Frankly, I just don’t get it. It’s not aromatic and on the palate is largely a mouthful of acidity—refreshing to be sure but so is water and I don’t pay $12 for a glass of water. The problem is not the grape. The very same grape when vinified in Alsace is complex, fleshy, and hedonistic.

      Travels in Sicily - Cantine Pellegrino

      …. A white variety called Grillo, which is used in making Marsala, yields surprisingly fresh and crisp whites. There is no Grillo listed by the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch (some private stores have various examples). The LDB, however, lists Pinot Grigio from Sicily. Even if Pinot Grigio is easier to sell than Grillo, it is absurd to list that varietal from Sicily when far better ones come from northern Italy. …
