Disclosure: The brand provided me with two wines for me to test out. This post is about the Pinot Grigio

 

 

Review: 

I would recommend this Pinot Grigio for just about anything you are cooking this summer. It’s light with bright flavors and super-easy to sip. To me, this wine tastes like early summer, when you want to sit around with friends watching the sun go down.  The easy-to-use resealable cork makes this wine and the entire Callie Collection of wines, worth buying because storing any remaining wine after it’s been opened is a snap! It’s definitely a winner varietal in my house!
