You still have a few more days to get your summer on! Why not do it with Grillo? Pronounced gree-lo, Grillo is a traditional Sicilian grape that ranges in styles from bright and savory to structured and mature. It's one of the best-known Sicilian grapes.
Alone or blended with Chardonnay or the local Catarratto grape, elegant, aromatic Grillo wines make lovely aperitifs and also refresh the palate with a variety of cuisines. The dishes and ingredients of the healthful and delicious Mediterranean diet—influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Spanish and French—are especially suited for the lighter meals of the summer season, and Grillo is specially suited to grilled foods, enjoyed al fresco.
