Like a counter culture hero, this lovely, crisp and delicious Pinot Gris is a stand-out contrarian in a region where Chardonnay is the de facto Queen of white wines.

I love fava beans with Pinot Gris and turn to fresh favas when they make a brief appearance in Spring, but out of season I reach for dried beans. To compensate, I add copious amounts of tender green herbs that lend their bright color, freshness and fragrance to the mix.
