An overused station requiring a revamp

Firstly, not all Pinot Grigio is made the same, and its recent popularity has led to a rush of not-so-great Pinot Grigio being sold. It should be a breath of fresh air, light and fragrant, with just the right amount of acidity to leave you refreshed and wanting more. Perfect for a glass at lunchtime or after work. However, the less flattering styles are likely to be flavourless and acidic, leaving you with a slight burn in the mouth and not much else. All is not lost though, the nice stuff is around, you just need to be selective.

Things you should know

Top Tip: Pinot Grigio can be grown anywhere, so look for the DOCG label particularly from Friuli-Venezia Giula region (easy for you to say), which means stricter rules have been adhered to in an area perfect for making Pinot Grigio.
Specific Food Match: Pinot Grigio isn't a complicated wine, and you need equally uncomplicated food to go with it. Stick to light, fresh dishes.
