Wine: Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio Valdadige D.O.C.

This is my absolute favourite white wine. I discovered it at an Italian Restaurant in Calgary many years ago now, and to this day it is still my go-to wine. For those of you who are not big white wine drinkers, I highly recommend you try this one, it is light and mild and the perfect introduction to white wines. The grape is 100% Pinot Grigio and Santa Margherita is grown and produced in Italy, in Trentino. The taste is very crisp and dry, and it has a mild fruity (apple) taste to it, without being sweet…as I am really not a fan of sweet white wines. As with many white wines, the recommended glass to drink

this out of it a medium-sized, tulip shaped glass, which narrows at the rim. This glass allows for the concentration and collection of a wine’s aroma. If you plan on pairing this wine with food, I recommend seafood, white meats, a nice fruit & cheese plate or salads. It’s great on its own as well.
