Here are a few of our favorite Pinot Grigio pairings:
1. Pinot Grigio and Seafood. One of the most popular choices for Pinot Grigio. The light, crisp flavors of the wine complement fish and shellfish perfectly. Try pairing Pinot Grigio with grilled salmon, shrimp scampi, or lobster rolls.

3. Pinot Grigio and Vegetarian Dishes: The wine’s light flavors won’t compete with the flavors of the food, making it a perfect pairing for dishes like vegetable lasagna or eggplant Parmesan.
4. Pinot Grigio and Cheese The wine’s acidity helps to balance out the richness of the cheese, making for a delicious pairing. Try pairing Pinot Grigio with Gruyere cheese, brie cheese, or goat cheese.
5. Pinot Grigio and Fruit The sweetness of the fruit helps to balance out the acidity of the wine, making for a refreshing pairing. Try pairing Pinot Grigio with strawberries, peaches, or melon.

"Hi l am Wim, sommelier, and wine enthusiast just like you! My fellow sommeliers understand the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature. They know that if wine is too warm, it will lose its flavors and complexities, and if wine is served too cold, it will numb your taste buds. A few world renown sommeliers and myself will explain this further, and share some interesting (taste) case studies."
