You’re hosting your first #adult dinner party in your apartment that you can’t afford, and have no clue which wine pairs well with each dish.
The ONE time you need your overbearing Jewish mother she isn’t answering. *Starts severely sweating*
We’ve connected with the team behind Cavit Wines, one of America’s top Italian wine brands, who knows a thing or two about wine and food pairings.
Bringing Pinot Grigio to the United States in the 1970s, the Taub Family pioneered the Pinot Grigio category and paved the road for Cavit’s success worldwide today.
Cavit Wines are produced in the Trentino region of Italy, one of the highest quality wine-producing regions in northern Italy. The brand is one of the first to bring authentic Italian Pinot to the United States.
Committed to the environment, Cavit produces 2/3 of its energy requirements by using solar panels and practices sustainable farming using green manure, organic farming techniques.
