Nadia Virani, OD, kicks off her wine recommendation with one of her all-time favorites. So whether you’re toasting to your sweetie or friends or enjoying some quiet time, consider a Pinot Blanc.
Here’s what Dr. Virani says.
– It is made from a pinot noir grape that has a mutation that causes it to be genetically irregular.
– The grape is typically grown in volcanic soil.
– It is mostly found in Northern Italy (Where I personally fell in love with it!) or Germany.
– The wine has a dry, light body, medium acidity, fruity aromas, typically vinified in a tank.
– Pair it with foods with a subtle flavor, such as salads or mild cheeses.
