Rediscovering Pinot Grigio: A Wine & Food Festa

Rediscovering Pinot Grigio: A Wine & Food Festa

On Thursday, May 9, we’re celebrating all that Pinot Grigio has to offer at Eataly NYC Flatiron! For one night only, we're inviting representatives of Italian Pinot Grigio winemakers to take over a part of our marketplace for an epic wine and food tasting event

REDISCOVERING PINOT GRIGIO: A WINE & FOOD FESTA

La Scuola and La Piazza at Eataly NYC Flatiron on Thursday, May 9 from 7-9 p.m.

Throughout the evening, enjoy exclusive tastings from more than 12 different Italian Pinot Grigio producers, plus chef-curated antipasti. As you taste, meet the winemakers and representatives and learn about the many nuances of this beloved Italian wine.

While we often think of Italian Pinot Grigio as zesty and dry with refreshing acidic notes, you’ll learn that this grape can express itself in many ways. From the refreshing Bianco and Rosé styles to natural and Amphora wines, we’ve got something for everyone. As you taste the wines side-by-side, you’ll learn how a variety of factors – geography, terroir, and the wine maker’s style – affect the final expression of the wine. Let us show you that no two Pinot Grigio are the same.

After the event, don't forget to stop by Eataly Vino, for the last tasting of the night!

WHAT IS PINOT GRIGIO? 

Originally born in Burgundy, France as a mutation of Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio made its way over the Alps to the Northern regions of Italy, only several centuries ago. Over time, this grape has slowly become one of Italy's most planted and exported varietals. Today, Pinot Grigio, (known as "Pinot Gris" in French) covers about 71,000 acres worldwide. In Italy, it can be found in the regions of Trentino, Alto Adige, and Veneto. While we often think of Italian Pinot Grigio as zesty and slightly dry with refreshing acid notes, you’ll find that the grape can express itself in many ways.
