While many of us might be familiar with this producer's amazing red wines, this crisp, crowd-pleasing white should not be overlooked. Bigger in body than most, this example is close to being termed “gris,” as opposed to “grigio.” In addition to being a great aperitif, this dry, aromatic white pairs nicely with most poultry, shellfish and seafood dishes.

The malbec grape variety is synonymous with the Argentine wine industry, accounting for the majority of this country’s wine production. Norton provides the consumer with amazing bang-for-the-buck. Keep this gem handy for your next fall BBQ, as it is an ideal partner for grilled red meats slathered in marinades or barbecue sauces.
