Discover Pinotage Wines

Pinot Noir, often known as the "noble grape" or "red burgundy," is a blue-tinged grape variety that belongs to the vitis vinifera grape vine species. This finicky vine comes from Burgundy, France, and produces a popular red wine.

While Burgundy continues to produce some of the world's best Pinot Noir wines, high-quality Pinot Noir is now cultivated and produced in a variety of milder regions throughout the globe. In reality, a recent global tasting revealed that some wine areas in New Zealand produce some of the world's finest value Pinot Noirs.

Pinot Noir is the go-to wine for many people. It's light enough to enjoy all summer long, and it goes well with virtually any fish. Pinot Noir has a wide range of flavors, so it pairs nicely with a variety of meats and cheeses. While demand for this light red wine has risen significantly, the grape is notoriously temperamental and difficult to cultivate. As a result, wine prices have risen in recent years. The drinking of Pinot Noir wines may be traced back to the first century, when the ancient Romans reported doing so shortly after conquering most of the Gaul area, which is now France. There is no clear proof as to when the grape was originally fermented and consumed, although it has been around for quite some time.
