Critique Review

"This generous pinot grigio is brimming with lemons and yellow apples and has bright acidity that enables it to carry the fullish body effortlessly. Long cool finish."

James Suckling on 2020 vintage.

Critique Review

"With a lively freshness and an easy approach, serving up notes of citrus and lemongrass, the entry-level San Michael Eppan 2020 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio may be that well-priced white you're looking for to fuel an evening of raclette fondue on potatoes after a winter's day of cross-country skiing or family tobogganing. This Dolomite staple is a standard and classic approach to the northern Italian workhorse grape. It's easy-breezy, bring on the cheesy."
