Good idea on the Pinot Grigio! I hope you picked our brand for the job! If you thought all the white wines were just light fare, try out an Italian white wine that’s been made with the “Passito” technique (our very own Maso Canali Pinot Grigio is one). The Passito method results in a crisp, fruity wine that comes with a very full, ripe palate. Since a portion of the grapes are dried before being fermented, it makes for a rounder wine with a fuller mouth feel. It also concentrates the fruit flavors of pineapple and apricot. Definitely of interest to white naysayers.

You've certainly got an interesting sounding process there. I'll certainly be on the lookout for it. Any idea where it's available near Cincinnati?
