Part of the Grigioâ€™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 â€˜niceâ€™. Refreshing and fun to slurp, but also substantial enough for a chicken, or creamy pasta dinner. Naturally these â€˜generousâ€™ PG will cost more, and will come mainly from warm climates. Such as this Californian offering from Estancia. See what you think.
