Cavit Wines Celebrates National Pinot Grigio Day

Cavit Collection, makers of America's #1 selling Italian wine brand*, invites wine enthusiasts to celebrate National Pinot Grigio Day on May 17th with a special Pinot Grigio doughnut and savory recipes.

Cavit is partnering with The Doughnut Project located in New York City's West Village from May 14-May 20 to offer a custom-made sweet treat to celebrate National Pinot Grigio Day. The delectable Cavit Pinot Grigio Doughnut will consist of a cheesecake filling, Cavit Pinot Grigio glaze and meringue.

In the 1970s Cavit became a pioneer by introducing a then little-known white wine from Trentino, Italy, Pinot Grigio, to the United States. Now the brand's signature variety and the leading Italian wine in America*, Cavit Pinot Grigio offers light refreshing notes of pear, apple, almonds and citrus, ideal for spring and summer. Pinot Grigio is highly versatile and can be enjoyed as a splendid aperitif as well as with dishes such as risottos, veal and fresh seafood dishes.

Those looking to commemorate National Pinot Grigio Day can find inspiration to sip and savor the wine with appetizing recipes on Cavit.com as well as on the brand's social media channels. Suggested recipes that pair well with Cavit Pinot Grigio include Lemon Angel Hair Pasta with Carrots and Zucchini with shallot, fresh greens, lemon, angel hair pasta, zucchini, carrots and olive oil; and Barley Risotto with Wild Mushrooms and Peas with dry white wine, mascarpone cheese, English peas, parmesan, hazelnuts, wild mushrooms and garlic cloves.

In addition to celebrating National Pinot Grigio Day, Cavit Collection Wines recently launched Cavit Rosé and Cavit Prosecco, both imported by leading U.S. wine & spirits importer Palm Bay International.

About Cavit:
