OGIO has re-launched their line of wines for the more casual wine drinker – an approachable, friendly and easy to drink wine for those who want to have a conversation over a glass of wine, not about a glass of wine! Originally introduced in the UK in 2006, OGIO came to the US in 2007 with limited distribution and has since spread to become a global brand in 13 countries. Now over 60 million bottles of OGIO Wines have been sold around the world.
OGIO’s has three distinct wines.
The OGIO Pinot Grigio is a delicate pale straw in color. Mouthwatering citrus and melon aromas segue beautifully into a perfect balance of natural tartness and rich fruit on the palate.
This is a quintessential Tuscan red. A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, it is rich ruby in color with enticing aromas of violet, cherry, and spice.
This Prosecco is pale light yellow in color with delightfully graceful perlage. The delicate yet complex bouquet offers fruity notes of peach and green apple, followed by hints of acacia and lilac.
I was sent OGIO Pinot Grigio Wine to try. I found this wine to have a very matured and refined taste. It is a pale wine that has a bit tartness with a touch of a fruity taste. I think this is a great wine to drink with friends over a nice dinner or at a social gathering. We just relaxed and experienced this Divine tasting wine.
You can find these exceptional wines near you with the online locator on the OGIO’s website . If there is not a store close, you may find one that you can order online. I plan to try Tuscan Red next!

One last note…Pinot Grigio is food friendly and will enhance everything from fresh seafood and white meats to both simple and exotic salads. It is also the rare wine that pairs well with Mexican, Thai, or other spicy ethnic foods.
I make a wonderful white wine sauce that I plan to use what little I have left of this wine. It is simple to make and should be quite tasty…

2 tbl flour
3/4 cup OGIO’s Pinot Grigio
