Italian Pinot Grigio Tasted Pinot Grigio virtually screams Italy, so it make sense that we begin our Pinot Grigio Grand Tasting Initiative with the Pinot Grigios of Italy. We’ve tasted many of your favorites before, so this time around I’m taking a look at some of the lesser known wines that you might encounter.

As I mentioned earlier, Trentino and the Alto-Adige are the historic homes of Italian Pinot Grigio, though the grape has spread throughout the north and beyond with some ferocity over the years. Most of the wines tasted today are in fact from the Veneto, Trentino’s neighbor to the east. While the two regions share much in common, they do have different soils and climates, so the resulting wines, while remaining in the classic Italian Pinot Grigio mold, do offer another take on the state of Italian Pinot Grigio.
