Pinot noir and pinot grigio are two very distinctive and flavorful varietals that continue to make waves here in Bakersfield. And more specifically, if you're looking for a tasty, crisp, refreshing wine, Tony Rienzo of Mama Tosca's Ristorante Italiano recommends you welcome summer with the Italian 2006 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. “It's a light, summer wine that goes well with grilled fish and salads,” Rienzo explains.
