National Pinot Grigio Day

I’m all about celebrating special occasions—from the smallest moments to major milestones—so I couldn’t wait to celebrate National Pinot Grigio Day on May 17. In anticipation of the holiday, I put together a glam picnic “how-to” with Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio as the centerpiece.  

Mezzacorona has been crafting Estate Grown wines since 1904. Located at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, the region is shaped by a spectrum of microclimates, ranging from Mediterranean to Alpine. The Pinot Grigio has notes of crisp Granny Smith apple, some minerality, and honeysuckle.

I grabbed my best friend, poured some bottles of Mezzacorona, and let the picnic begin. My picnic essentials are…

  • A comfy and sturdy blanket, that can handle tough stains
  • A picnic basket full of goodiesincluding a dope charcuterie spread and some fruit to freshen up
  • A delicious dessert, to satisfy that sweet tooth later on
  • And a refreshing boozy drink to keep you hydrated in between bottles of wine

I put together a white peach sangria, my husband’s signature drink, that is oh so easy to make and keeps you somewhat hydrated. All you have to do is…

  • Grab a pitcher and to put some ice in in
  • Then put in some canned sliced peaches to taste (juice optional, I opt for no)
  • Pour in some Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio to taste (I usually pour in most of the bottle)
  • And then top with mint and Fresca (or sparkling water or another clear soda) and stir
  • And pour into a wine glass for ultimate fanciness

And there you have it. The perfect, casual but fun, setting for National Pinot Grigio Day! How do you plan on celebrating?
