Pinot Grigio/Gris Grape Varietal Definition

By Gayot Editors

Pinot Gris is a pinkish-white varietal producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d’Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
