"This white wine is produced fromorganic grapes grown in the hills above the river Piave in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. It is estate-bottled by Perlage, the organic producer. We formerly sold this wine under the Borgo Faveri label but have returned to using the original winery label. Perlage has been involved in organic viniculture since 1981, and strives to maintain the highest production principles in order to produce wines that reflect their deep commitment to protection of the environment.
Pinot Grigio is a grape variety also known as Pinot Gris in France and the US. It has
rich aromas and flavors that bring to mind citrus and exotic fruits. Italian Pinot Grigio
has become the most popular white wine sold in the US. We encourage you to try this
one made from organic grapes and experience a most natural Pinot Grigio!
Perlage Pinot Grigio is dry, yet fruity to the taste, with a marked richness in flavor. This wine is best enjoyed as an aperitif, or with light pasta dishes, grilled fish, chicken and fresh seafood."
