Lindsay’s Tea Party is so happy to share with our readers our fabulous new find for all your Summer entertaining & hospitality party needs! It’s Caposaldo Wine… today we are sampling a yummy sweet Moscato and an Italian Pinot Grigio! Take a peak…
Why try a Sweet Moscato?… here is just a few reasons we loved it.
The grapes grow on the cool hilltops of northern Italy’s Lombardy region, where the northern-lying Alps shield the low-yielding hillside vineyards from harsh weather and the 20-year-old vines benefit from a superb blend of soils. During harvest, the fruit is carefully handpicked.
Bright gold in color, this sweet wine delivers intense pear, peach and spice aromas and flavors, and fresh, vivacious bubbles.
Enjoy with fruit pies and tarts, fruit cobblers or fresh strawberries, peaches or raspberries.

Lastly we sampled some Italian flavor and chose the 2014 Pinot Grigio.
PINOT GRIGIO VENETO IGT
In northern Italy’s Veneto region, near Venice, the Pinot Grigio vines are planted on hillside vineyards situated 750 feet above sea level, where they benefit from well-drained, mineral rich, volcanic basaltic rock and chalky clay soils. Handpicking and cold fermentation promotes fresh acidity, and the wine is not oak aged, allowing the grapes’ varietal character to remain prominent.
Features a dry, crisp, vibrant texture and delicate aromas of white fruit, flowers and almonds.
Pairs well with white meats, fish, seafood, pasta dishes and delicate cheeses.
