DetailsMaster Vintner™ Pinot Grigio makes 6 gallons of crisp dry white wine scented with citrus and a clean finish that lingers on minerals, white fruits and almonds.
Light straw tinged with green, this wine's up front lemon, grapefruit, and pear notes give way to floral aromas, and the crisp, zesty acidity makes it dance on the palate. A medium-bodied wine, it marries lush drinkability with smooth refinement.
Pair with white fish and light seafood dishes, like sole in buerre blanc or grilled halibut, broiled oysters, or for a zesty treat, ceviche. Pinot Grigio also works with sliced pears and soft cheese (or white stilton!)--or even with calamari on a sunny patio.
Serve cool (52-55F) rather than ice cold, to bring out the citrus and pear aromas, or try it with a splash of soda and a lime wedge for a brilliant spritzer at your next party.

5 months agoPinot Grigio wine kit reviewThis kit makes a decent white wine. I adjusted a few steps to make it more my style. The oak chip package had a hole in it, so I did not use them. I like PG more on the crisp, Italian style, so I probably wouldn't have used them anyway. Caution in adding the potassium sorbate in the clearing stage as per the instructions. That's probably early - should be just prior to bottling to ensure no further fermentation.October 24, 2018Purchased
2 months agoI will use this as base for my whites.My wife and I have been making wines for several years now. We use certain juices as a base to "wildcat" our own house vintages. We have made a White using the Pinot Grigio as a base to make a 35 proof very smooth tasting wine. We will make this as our standard white.July 15, 2018Purchased
6 months agoPinot GrigioDuring the second fermentation, I experienced a scary problem. My wine bubbled up over the top of the carboy and oak chips overflowed with the bubbly wine. I emailed a "Master Vintner" and he reassured me that all would be well, just give it some time. It seemed to take a long time but, sure enough, the wine cleared. I bottled it and tried some. It's very clear and tastes great! I am very grateful to Mike W for his support.April 2, 2018Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 14 answerswhats included in the kit?BEST ANSWER: The kit contains California Grape Concentrate and, though it's been a while since I made it, I think it also contains Elder Flowers or White Oak additive. I receive a lotto compliments from friends and family regarding this Pinot and highly recommend you try it. Additionally, serve it cold (cool) and when making it I always ferment all Master Vinter Wines at least two weeks longer than what the recipe states. I firmly believe, after making many different wines over the past 11 years, added fermenting time adds to the flavor and finish.What's in kit?BEST ANSWER: Benonite to aid in clarifying during fermentation. Concentrated varietal grape juice, wine yeast, potassium metabisulfate and potassium sorbate to stop and stabilize the wine after fermentation, and Isinglass and chitosan to clarify the finished wine.I was wondering about ordering during the summer, it's pushing a hundred here and I know the back end of those UPS trucks are 140+, will the yeast survive and the concentrate not cook??BEST ANSWER: Hi there, the yeast and juice should be just fine. We do guarantee safe transit for all of our products though, so if there are any issues, we can work something out. Cheers!
