Santa Margherita became the celebrated wine that it is today as a result of the entrepreneurial spirit of one man. A young importer named Anthony Terlato set out on a trip to Italy in search of the “next great white wine.”
At a small restaurant in a local inn, Anthony ordered 18 bottles of Pinot Grigio off the wine list. After tasting all the wines with the Inn’s proprietor, he determined the best wine at the table was Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio quickly became a mainstay on wine lists in America’s finest restaurants across the country and is still today the most requested Italian wine in America.
