The Daily Drink: Jermann Pinot Grigio

“The Daily Drink” brings you a must-try libation from our booze columnist Zach Geballe.

There’s never a time of year that’s NOT white wine season for me, but I know most of you will disagree. Either way, we’re clearly entering that glorious period when a glass of cool, crisp white wine is the perfect drink for any given moment. Now, I occasionally badmouth Pinot Grigio: In fact, I often call it “the beige of white wine,” but that’s because most Italian Pinot Grigio is mild and inoffensive at best. Not the Jermann Pinot Grigio, which delivers powerful aromatics and a rich, full mouthfeel to go along with bright acidity and a rocky minerality that makes it delightfully refreshing. I had mine at Serafina, but it pops up at Italian restaurants throughout the city.

Zach Geballe does a lot of drinking. When he’s not working at The Dahlia Lounge or for his business Vine Trainings, he’s studying for the Court of Master Sommeliers Exam. His weekly column here at Seattle Weekly, The Bar Code, endeavors to inspire, educate and sometimes poke fun at all things beer, wine and spirits related.
