Friuli Pinot Grigio

Tony Terlato is known around the world as the "Father of Pinot Grigio," having introduced the varietal to U.S. consumers in 1979. Now, the Terlato family has partnered with renowned Italian viticulturalists, Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch, to launch a new Terlato Pinot Grigio from the Colli Orientali region of Friuli - Italy's most respected area for fine white wines.
