Part of the Grigio’s success is due to its simplicity and conservative nature, but I see potential for expanding the fan base by upping the quality. By filling out the wine so it feels generous as well as ‘nice’. Refreshing and fun to slurp, but also substantial enough for a chicken, or creamy pasta dinner. Naturally these ‘generous’ PG will cost more, and will come mainly from warm climates. Such as this Californian offering from Estancia. See what you think.
