Reviews and Ratings

Pighin 2018 is a dry, zesty and mouth-watering, medium-bodied Pinot Grigio from the Friuli Grave wine region. Fresh with ripe apple, pear, spicy with a clean mineral finish. Chill and enjoy. It's excellent with pan-fried trout. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
