Featured Wines for April- Vigneti del Sole, Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio (2019) $12 & Vigneti del Sole, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (2018) $12

April takes us back to Italy following the brothers Natale, Nicola, Riccardo and Umberto Pasqua as they moved from Puglia to Veneto and established their company, Vigneti del Sole, in Verona in 1952. In 2000, the family decided to return to their southern roots and set up winemaking operations back in Puglia, where they cultivate local varietals. This independent, family owned winery has, for years, been successfully producing wines packed with fruit, liveliness and the superb characteristics of their region while remaining uncomplicated wines that are easy to drink and easy on the wallet.

Our white selection is Vigneti del Sole, Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio (2019) and the red is Vigneti del Sole, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (2018.) These are easy wines to enjoy and afford!
