Seemingly every big-name winegrower wants to extend the brand, as the marketing sorts says¦. One of those entries is a brand called Riff (German for reef) created by one of northern Italy's most famous wine producers, Alois Lageder. With a little astute looking and a lot of discrimination, a producer could put together a swell wine blended from various offerings at a very competitive price. Just the ticket for a summertime aperitif or an ideal keep-it-coming accompaniment to all kinds of food.
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris pair nicely with seafood, light pasta, and cheese crackers. It can also be a great salad wine.
