When you first walk into Canal's, the first end cap to an aisle that you come to is festooned with bottle of Pinot Griogio, and some other whites. After being very satisifed with Chadd's Ford's Pinot Grigio, I was in the mood to try another one, and this one is mixed with Chardonnay.

60% Chard, with the remaining 40% being the Pinot Grigio gives this wine an interesting, and somewhat sophisticated taste that has your palate set, not seesawing as to find the dominant grape.

It's crisp and refreshing, with a hint of sophisticated smoothness that you would think of in a song by Luther Vandross or Sinatra.

You might want to serve this to someone bored with the basic releases and versions of both wines, but not yet ready to cross into red territory.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
