Kirkland Signature Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio

This area has a very cool climate that allows the grapes to ripen slowly. The word “Grave” translates to gravel.

The soil in the vineyards is heated by the sun during the day and the rocks and stones absorb the heat and warm the roots of the grapevines, so there is a balance against being too warm and too cold.

The Kirkland Signature Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio 2022 can sell for $4.99 because Costco is the largest wine seller in the US. A tiny profit can become large when sold in volume.

Pinot Grigio is one of the wines that are made in the vineyard. The grapes are picked at the optimal time, pressed, and fermented. The production does not need to be complicated.

You do not need extended aging or oak barrels. Grow the grapes well and pick at the best time,e and you are most of the way to a good wine. The alcohol content is a mild 12.5%.
