Matching Tuna Tataki with Vivace

Here are some great Food Pairing ideas for our Pinot Grigio from Severine (our Winemaker):

Wine – Vivace (Pinot Grigio) very aromatic with some pear and peach, nice back bone of acidity but at the same time lots of volume and weight.

Food – I would pair this with some tuna tataki or a simple caprese salad with some organic heirloom tomato and some buffalo mozzarellaIMG_5612
