Bud's Picks: Voga Pinot Grigio

We're back with another installment of Bud's Picks! Local wine enthusiast, WineGirl's Uncle Bud, picks his favorites from the stash at Hopewell Buy Rite in Hopewell, NJ

Voga Pinot Grigio
Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
Looking for something a little different in Pinot Grigio? You need to try Voga Pinot Grigio! Take a step up in flavor and body. It combines the soft flavors of Veneto and the structure of Trentino to produce what I call “a little more in your mouth”. Not overbearing, but a noticeable pleasant flavor you don’t usually get in a Pinot Grigio. 
Great package too! Tell me it doesn’t look like a perfume bottle! 
I’m buying it for $9.99, on sale, at Hopewell Buy Rite.
Uncle Bud isn't the only one drinking Voga Pinot Grigio. Tim at Cheap Wine Ratings agrees:
This wine has some really nice pear and floral aromatics, with moderate intensity.  The flavors are mostly pear and apple, but it also offers some lime and subtle peach notes.  The acidity is sufficient, but not dramatic.  The finish is nice and long.  Overall, it’s a pretty nice wine.  And it will look stylish sitting on your shelf before you drink it.
Just in time for summer, this refreshing wine should be enjoyed chilled at a picnic or poolside.

A fan of "Bang for your Buck" wines, Uncle Bud has worked in wine shops for over a decade, sampling the best from around the world and the states. Bud's wine travels have encompassed the Napa Valley, the Finger Lakes, and a few wine adventures in Arizona.
