FreshDirect customers share our passion for Pinots, so we decided to celebrate our mutual love with a week of Pinot Mania! Our resident wine experts, Nicole and Rodolphe, have selected seven of their favorites, ranging from outstanding value to exceptional pedigree. Whether you’re looking for the perfect dinner pairing, or a bottle for romantic sharing, we’ve got the red or white pinot for you.
Rickshaw Pinot Noir
If you’re looking for a new go-to Pinot Noir, we’ll steer you straight to the juicy Rickshaw. Like the cool kid in school, this wine doesn’t try too hard, effortlessly balancing berry flavors with warm spice notes.
Cultivate Pinot Noir
Cultivate takes the Cali Pinot experience to the next level. This wine expresses the quintessential character of cool climate California Pinot: sweet red cherry and raspberry with bright acidity and a hint of spice to round out a long supple finish.
ZD Wines Pinot Noir
This historic boutique producer was founded in California in the 1970s and stylistically tips its hat to Burgundy – the fatherland of Pinot Noir – with its restrained, elegant style. Aromas of raspberry, rhubarb, and black cherry blend beautifully with subtle hints of cedar, vanilla, and spice.
Domaine Raissac Les Lions Pinot Noir
If you prefer a bit more Old World earth and spice in your Pinot then Domaine Raissac Les Lions from the south of France is the perfect choice. This Frenchie is not overly light or austere, offering ripe fruit and an easy drinking, lip-smacking experience.
Underwood Pinot Noir
We couldn’t resist showcasing Underwood in this esteemed collection. Not only is it delicious, but it comes in a 375ml can. This is a perfect party container or individual size for when you don’t have a partner in crime to finish an entire bottle.
Trimbach Pinot Blanc
Lest we forget our white Pinots. Trimbach Pinot Blanc from the historic Alsatian producer is fragrant, delicious, and the perfect companion to all lighter fare dishes.
San Osvaldo Pinot Grigio
Finally, Nicole and Rodolphe traveled to Italy with a mission to fall in love with an Italian Pinot Grigio that they could bring back for our customers. San Osvaldo from Italy’s Northern Veneto region left them smitten. This wine is refreshing and full-flavored with ripe citrus notes blending into a smooth round finish.
