Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris. We’ve talked about the wines before and in all honesty it can get boring to talk about Pint Gris, unless you shake things up a bit.

Most of us instinctively turn toward Italy to get our Grigio fix, a reaction that has been beaten into us through incessant advertising and media placements. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there’s no great Grigio in Italy (after all my top scoring wines and best value both come from Italy), but what I will say is that the supply of good Italian Pinot Grigio far outstrips the demand.

So other than saying that there’s a ton of crappy Italian Pinot Grigio floating around out there, what does that mean?
