Mommy’s Time Out Garganega/Pinot Grigio
This delicate and fruity wine is a sure pick-me-up for anyone who’s had a long, busy day. The bouquet has notes of pear, citrus and almonds. The first impression upon tasting it is crisp and refreshing, with the Garganega adding body to the midpalate and length on the finish.

Mom deserves a break from time to time. And she’ll love taking some time out for a nice glass of wine. The inspiration for this wine is all the supermoms who take care of their homes and families and maybe even manage to have a career at the same time.
Thanks for everything Mom!
Don’t forget Mother’s Day. Do something special for the all the mothers in your life. If you’re a mother, do something special for yourself, you deserve it!
Even if you don’t have any kids or you’re a dad you can still enjoy this fun wine!
What is this Garganega? Everyone loves Pinot Grigio but who’s heard of Garganega? Probably nobody, but you might know Soave, which contains a lot of Garganega, they just don’t put it on the label (and who would when Soave sounds so nice?)
Garganega is thought to have originated in Greece. It is nearly identical to Sicily’s Grecanico grape and it has been grown in northeast Italy for centuries.
Mommy’s Time Out is made from a blend of Garganega and Pinot Grigio from vineyards in the Venezie region of northeastern Italy. Besides being beautiful, this region is blessed with the ideal climate (sunny and not too hot) for making elegant white wines. It was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine’s natural acidity and freshness and no oak barrels was used, so all you get is pure fruit flavors!
Serve this wine as an aperitif, with a salad, seafood, chicken or give yourself a well-deserved night off and have some Chinese food delivered home!
