About This Wine
Santa Margherita introduced Americans to Pinot Grigio in 1979.
Now, more than 30 years later, Santa Margherita remains the most requested Pinot Grigio, and the most requested of all imported wines, in America’s fine restaurants.
The owners of Santa Margherita have a clear vision: to establish the wine around the world as one of the principal proponents of Italian gastronomy. That involves matching the wine with food and creating pleasurable, memorable experiences. “Put much more simply,” a winery spokesperson tells us, “we believe that the consumer, the grape and the terroir of origin are indissolubly linked. This is the primary guarantee that we give to the consumer. The second is the wholesomeness of our products and the consistency of [the quality] in every one of our wines.”
The 2010 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio, like virtually all previous vintages, is well structured and sophisticated. And that makes it a perfect choice for fine dining and entertaining.
About Pinot Grigio
In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.
