Pinot Grigio & Proseco c/o Tiziano Wine
Tiziano Wine recently sent me some of their delicious wine to try and promote on my blog. I must admit, I'm a huge wine-o and so is my mother and husband, so we always like discovering new wines. This past Sunday, when our sweet girl went down for a late afternoon nap, we decided it would be the perfect time to taste test these new wines and munch on our fave snack: cheese and crackers. After all, what's better than wine and cheese? I also recently received this cute chalkboard charger from the Piper Loves Ollie etsy shop, and I knew it would be the perfect platter for our cheeses.
First up was the Pinot Grigio wine. It has a medium body and a fruity tang, comprised of pear and citrus. This wine is best paired with tomato dishes, white pasta, non-grilled seafood, and white meat. It worked out nicely because later in the evening we dined on yummy cheese ravioli and spinach.
Next we tried the Prosecco. I love me some sparkling wine, so I couldn't wait to pop open this bottle. This wine also had a nice fruity aroma, but paired with fine persistent bubbles. This wine is best paired with sushi and asian dishes, as well as oysters, scallops, shrimp, and lobster.
Right now Tiziano Wine is hosting a Toast It & Post It Contest via their Facebook page. To enter, all you have to do is upload your favorite wine moments to Instagram, Facebook, or the Tiziano website!
