Pinot Blanc, yet another “wine vegetable” you should be drinking, but like kale it’s so yummy

August 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

After three weeks off (I was in Italy, boo hoo for me), I’m back to writing weekly wine columns, and here’s the latest, a celebration of that too-little-known gem of a grape, Pinot Blanc. Pinot Blanc wines are made in surprisingly varied styles, from many of the world’s great wine regions, and I only touch on a few here (Alto Adige, Alsace, Oregon, California). But check it out. These wines are very friendly, very character-ful, very distinctive.

I call Pinot Blanc a “wine vegetable”, by the way, because it’s like, here’s yet another slightly scolding screed about what you ought to be drinking. I don’t like coming at it all from that angle. But the wine is so delicious! So lovely with all sorts of foods! So inexpensive for what it is, too. Enjoy.
