We had company for dinner the weekend before Memorial Day. Company calls for appetizers and, of course, a lovely wine. It was a gorgeous evening and I decided to top garlic rubbed toasts with a shrimp and feta concoction. Oh, my. I could have eating all the topping with a spoon! So glorious and refreshing, I knew they’d be perfect with a crisp glass of white wine, Pinot Grigio to be exact. It was a heavenly pairing!

National Pinot Grigio Day

Did you know Cavit, which hails from Trento in northern Italy, is credited with introducing Pinot Grigio to the states in 1977? I, for one, am very grateful. With citrus and green apple undertones, Pinot Grigio pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, cheeses like feta and chevre, as well as citrus sauces and desserts.

Pinot Grigio is ideal for sipping during the warm summer months. Though I started the party early,  I hope you’ll join me in celebrating the first ever National Pinot Grigio Day on Friday, May 26th! From now on, the Friday before Memorial Day will forever be known as National Pinot Grigio Day. Thank you, Cavit, for bringing one of my favorite varietals to the states!
