We debuted My Book Club Only Reads Wine Labels last year with a lovely Rosé, and this year the story continues with the sequel – a lovely, crisp, aromatic California Pinot Grigio. This vinous cliffhanger finds our protagonist, an intrepid California wine explorer, descending from the hills from which we sourced our Rosé and heading towards the coastal valleys, where Pinot Grigio delivers a stone fruit and citrus-driven tangy white that adds a refreshing verve to any meal. So turn the page, grab a glass and read on, the suspense is making us thirsty!

WINE PROFILE

My Book Club Only Reads Wine Labels pours a lovely, bright yellow color, and features sensual, heady aromas of orange blossom, nectarine and savory herbs. On the palate, My Book Club Only Reads Wine Labels is bright and direct, tangy and precise with good depth to the stone fruit and citrus flavors. Finishes slightly off-dry, with a spicy note, good clarity and a long, vibrant finish. Great on its own, but really comes alive with food.

GRIGIO MUCH THE BETTEr

Pinot Grigio, also known as Pinot Gris, is a noble variety that originated in France, achieved international popularity in Italy, and is now reaching great heights in its new world incarnation under sunny California skies. Interestingly, the Pinot Grigio grape is actually a mutation of Pinot Noir, which was isolated and then cloned. Pinot Grigio has a pinkish-grey skin and is adored for the clean, easy-drinking wines that it produces.

The popularity of Pinot Grigio has exploded in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. It is now California’s third-leading white variety, and the wines tend to be made in two distinctly different styles. Pinot Gris tends to be richer and softer, while a great Pinot Grigio like
My Book Club Only Reads Wine Labels shows a crisper, brighter personality. My Book Club Only Reads Wine Labels is sure to make your personal best-seller list, and the next chapter of great California white wine is undoubtedly Pinot Grigio.
