A top 10 of pinot gris producers that you've got to try

10 Top Pinot Gris Producers Okay, read the title again. This is simply a list of 10 top Pinot Grigio/Gris producers, not THE top 10. I’ve assembled 10 producers here who I think you should try. Together, they represent good value and a variety of styles across many price points.

Over the past two weeks, I’ve posted plenty of tasting notes of wines that are easily found and some of wines that are barely distributed. I realize a little more guidance might be in order if we want to learn about the many faces of Pinot Grigio. So, that’s where this list comes in.

By building a top 10 producers list that focuses on price, place and quality, I’m hoping to give you a framework from which to launch your further studies. Get to know Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris through the work of these amazing producers. You’ll find a world of different styles and a wide range of prices.

For better or for worse, this wide array of options pretty much sums up the situation with most wines of the world, and Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris just takes the confusion to a higher level. Once you’ve mastered the basics, the rest comes naturally!

    Hi GDP

    As always your articles are informative and interesting, as it is always good to showcase different interpretations of varietals and how terroir, wine making style and local conditions influence the finished product.

    However I noticed a lack of any reference or mention of Central European Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio as now in Austria, Germany and Hungary there are wineries and vineyards producing outstanding Pinot Gris wines. Yes they are different than Alsace and Alto Adige, but they are well made, fruit driven and offer quality for a reasonable price.

    Cheers!
