24 Jun Perfect Pinot (Gris) for a party – Eola Hills 2019 Pinot Gris
With the onset of summer…and the loosening of many
Covid-related restrictions on gatherings…summer parties
are in the offing. If you’re planning a warm-weather
get-together and the guest list is growing,
you’ll need a white wine that’s suitable for sipping
but also budget friendly.
It’s Wine Thursday!, our weekly
just in time for your weekend.
Back to your upcoming summer party.
This week’s reco would be a good choice to
both please your guests and your pocketbook.
While not everyone loves Pinot Gris,
it’s difficult to find anyone who doesn’t at least
like it…especially when the weather is warm
and the wine is well-chilled.
Thus, Pinot Gris is a solid choice
for summer entertaining.
Eola Hills 2019 Pinot Gris checks all of the summer party boxes.
It has the typical Pinot Gris characteristics: crisp acidity,
medium body, enticing aromas and pleasing fruit flavors.
Your guests will like that.
And it’s a tremendous value.
You will like that.
If you aren’t hosting a gathering
but merely looking for a cool drink
on a warm night,
the Eola Hills 2019 can fill that bill too.
It’s a perfect match for salmon or grilled chicken
but also works wonderfully on its own.
