I couldn’t help but smile as I browsed through Big House Wine’s website. The whole theme behind this wine is “The Big House” aka Prison. They have really put a lot of time and thought into this wine and I love that.
Big House Winery in Soledad, CA (Monterey County) is a mere ankle iron’s toss from the Soledad State Correctional Facility, a.k.a. “the Big House,” “The Clink,” “The Slammer,” which explains the recurring prison theme depicted on the labels. The brand’s cornerstone is a rebellious New World winemaking style blending Mediterranean varieties. Big House wines unshackle consumers from ball and chain wine choices and rules, creating criminally exhilarating everyday wines.
The Birdman Pinot Grigio was exceptionally refreshing and light on the palate. With hints of citrus fruits, such as grapefruit, honeydew and melon, it made for a great tasting wine. It is a very approachable wine and one that everyone will find enjoyable.
Try the recommended food pairings to bring out the flavors of this wine:
Pinot Grigio pairs well with goat cheese pancetta and arugula pizza, Thai chicken with basil, smoked trout, estoufée, grilled jumbo shrimp, spaghetti and clam sauce or sunny afternoons. Head on over to Mess Hall to check on the recipe for the Jumbo Shrimp. YUM!
A bottle of Big House Pinot Grigio will run you under $10.00 which is a great price for this wine!

I also just have to share with you how adorable the wine cap is!
