This Memorial Day weekend, if you're looking for an easy to make meal, the Terlato family kitchen has your dish. In honor of National Wine Day on Sunday, May 25, they created Sautéed Clams, which pairs perfectly with the Terlato Family Vineyards Pinot Grigio. The dish serves eight to twelve.
The crisp Pinot Grigio is ideal for summer. (Courtesy Photo)
