Discover Pinot Grigio Wines
Pinot Grigio is a white wine grape variety with grey, white red, or purple skins. (Thus the French word 'gris,' meaning 'gray.') Because the Pinot Grigio and Gris grapes are considered to be genetically fragile, color constancy is not a strong point (as seen in the photo below by Navarro Vineyards).
Pinot Grigio wines that are more ripe tend to have more tropical and tree fruit tastes, while grapes that are less mature have more pronounced citrus fruit notes. Almost all Pinot Grigio is produced as a dry white wine with a light to medium body. The finest Pinot Grigio wines are crisp, refreshing, and well balanced overall, with mild acidity and rich fruit flavors, regardless of the body.
Some varieties may have more acidity than others, depending on quality and manufacturing techniques. Especially in wine-growing areas with a cold environment.
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety, but the Italian name is Pinot Grigio and the French designation is Pinot Gris.
Italian Pinot Grigio is known for its citrus and tree fruit tastes, while French Pinot Grigio is known for its tropical fruit aromas. This is dependent on a number of variables, including terroir, harvest period, and vinification styles.
