Wine Not? | Catering Greenville, NC

Famiglia is an Italian-American restaurant in Greenville, NC. At Famiglia, we know it’s all about good food and time spent with family and friends. That’s why we offer a variety of tasty Italian-American cuisine as well as a full bar and catering services.

What’s better than a big bowl of homemade pasta or a warm pizza topped with fresh ingredients? Our pasta or pizza paired with the perfect wine! We offer a number of delicious wines in house to pair perfectly with your selection from our menu. We also offer wine tastings so you can sample some of the wines we offer.

If you’re a fan of white wine, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio are popular white wine offerings. Chardonnay is a dry white wine that goes great with cream-based sauces, like our alfredo. Pinot Grigio is a sweeter white wine that is fairly versatile and goes well with both cream-based and tomato-based sauces. Riesling can be both sweet or dry, depending on where it’s made and what it’s made of; it goes best with cream and oil-based sauces.

If you prefer red wines, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chianti, and Pinot Noir are popular choices. Because of their deep, rich flavors, most red wines typically pair best with tomato-based sauces. This is true of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chianti. Pinot Noir is the lightest of these wines and can be paired with tomato, oil, and cream-based sauces.
