Fresh, ripe lemon, white peach, bright lime, and juicy green apple fruit adds a hint of pleasant herbs and finishes crisp and clean. Over triple-your-money here, with elements that rival the best Pinot Grigios in the world. A 1-in-1,000, needle-in-a-haystack rarity at this price point and an extraordinary value.

You got two sides of a coin to Pinot Grigio. One side of the coin super crowd friendly, very light wine you can drink it any time of the day. Everybody who likes Pinot Grigio likes it because it's a universal wine. It's almost like having lemon water for people. Other side of the coin it doesn't appeal to a lot of true aficionados of wine because it is simple most to the time and light most the time. Well, we have found the one in a thousand needle in the haystack Pinot Grigio that serves it up for both sides of the coin. This is one to seek out. It's only at Trader Joe's. The 2013 Contadino Pinot Grigio from northern Italian region that is known for great Pinot Grigios. But this is a six dollar Pinot Grigio that goes up over triple your money, twenty five dollar valuation.

Fine wine! Fine wine!

It's all about value here. You know Joe and I are always going out there trying to find great value. We've taste hundreds of Pinot Grigios to find the one that really stands out. This is the best the six dollar Pinot Grigio you'll ever taste in your entire life. It is incredible. It's got lemon. It's got peach, yes peach. That's a tremendous flavor to find in a Pinot Grigio. That really sets this wine apart. There's beautiful lime. There's green apple in this. It is bright. It's clean. It's crisp. It's fresh. It's exactly what you want.

There's one other thing it is and that is perfectly, and when I say perfectly I mean perfectly balanced. What does that mean for you? It means you're in for one helluva Pinot Grigio. In fact, I don't care if you live fifty miles away from a Trader Joe's. Make your shopping list get down there. Buy your four cheese pizza. Buy your frozen Tilapia. Buy multiple bottles this Pinot Grigio. It's new way. Contadino Pinot Grigio.

Yes indeed.

Unbelievable, fine wine all the way.
