Matto Pinot Grigio (9) 2020

Producer: Tombacco

The literal translation of “MATTO” from Italian is “crazy” and represents our Insane Passion for Wine. It’s also the combination of the last and first name of its creator (and Stem Wine Group’s owner), Tony Macchione.  MA + TO, get it?  But for Tony, it has an even deeper meaning. As a result of personal experiences, Tony has also developed a passion for helping those with mental health issues, Alzheimer’s Disease and brain related cancers. So, with a profound respect and zest for the love of life, we donate a portion of proceeds from every purchase to mental health charities and brain research programs.

For the Matto Pinot Grigio, we teamed up with Cristian Tombacco of Vinicola Tombacco in Veneto to create a wine with the appropriate balance of acidity, fruit and weight. We aimed for a wine that could be enjoyed by many different palates and be extremely versatile with various cuisines. We are very confident that once you try the Matto Pinot Grigio, you will agree that it is in line with our philosophy for the Matto brand.The literal translation of “MATTO” from Italian is “crazy” and represents our Insane Passion for Wine.
