At Joonbug we always have our pulse on the latest and greatest in fashion, food, beauty and lifestyle. We recently heard the buzz surrounding Drew Barrymore's new Pinot Grigio from Barrymore Wines and just had to learn more.
Drew Barrymore created this wine in honor of her family. Her travels throughout Italy inspired her to create a Pinot Grigio that she enjoys with family and friends. A fan of crisp, fruity white wines, Barrymore has created a wine that reflects her style and personality: fresh, dynamic and fun. The region this wine is from makes it even more interesting. In the northeast corner of Italy, is the Triveneto area. It consists of three regions: Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto. These regions lie just below the alps and are known for producing light, crispy, fresh white wines. The results are simply delicious. This charming Pinot Grigio has hints of fresh apricot and lively citrus flavors.
This wine is light and has a pleasant fruity flavor to it. We paired the wine with a roasted chicken dinner and our guests went on and on about how they enjoyed the flavors. The great thing about this wine is that it goes well with everything from a high-end gourmet meal to a thin crust pizza -- pure genius.
In true Drew form -- a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of this wine will benefit charity. Joonbug highly recommends this light refreshing wine which pairs well with a multitude of dishes, small plates and appetizers. Cheers!
