Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris wines are unique among whites in that they can possess red wine capabilities on the dinner table. It is semi-fragrant and crisp, with honey, wildflower, and smoke adding body to this light wine. Pinot Grigio goes well with traditional white wine fare such as light fish and chicken, but can also be successfully paired with ham, veal, pasta, and Italian hors d’oeuvres. Soft and semi-soft ripened cheeses make fantastic accompaniments to the subtle flavours of this wine, especially Camembert, Feta, Oka, and Swiss. Strongly flavoured meats and seafood such as salmon and game birds should be avoided, as should rich, heavy cream sauces. This is a fantastic summer wine, great for casual entertaining and light Italian food.
