Let's Celebrate Pinot Grigio Day

Join Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia on 17 May 2024 in celebrating World Pinot Grigio Day as we raise a glass to this beloved varietal.
Pinot Grigio, among the most widely planted white wine grapes globally, presents a light-bodied, acid-driven profile primarily grown in Northern Italy. Exhibiting refreshing notes of freshly cut pear, citrus, and subtle spices, it's an ideal aperitif choice, offering easy-drinking enjoyment. This varietal complements lighter meals superbly, pairing excellently with dishes like asparagus, poached chicken, white fish, and light pasta or risotto, owing to its delicate flavours.

In Australia, Pinot Grigio flourishes in cooler to moderate climate regions such as the King Valley, Yarra Valley, Orange, and Mornington Peninsula. These areas offer ideal conditions for cultivating this crisp, refreshingly dry white wine.

Among our Ultimate Wineries, you'll discover outstanding examples of Pinot Grigio from the King Valley:
