This effervescent Pinot Noir would be perfect as a celebratory aperitif but also with any number of lighter chicken and pork recipes. But for an out of the box pairing, why not try this wine with Fish Tacos with Strawberry Salsa?
Modern day Szigeti (pronounced ZIG-it-ee) was born in 1990, when brothers Norbert and Peter Szigeti returned to their hometown of Gols, to take over the family business. Past generation family members had produced small quantities of wine in their village in a traditional mixed agriculture system. Norbert trained in enology and worked in a large sparkling wine firm in Vienna, while Peter completed hotel management school and worked both in Austria and abroad. The brothers combined their skills and increased knowledge of the market beyond their village, to open the Sektkellerei (”Sparkling Cellar”). The winery”s philosophy is succinctly noted at the top of their letterhead: ”Traditional bottle fermentation * Unmistakable fizz * Unique character.”
