Pinot Grigio

Common synonyms: Pinot Gris, “white Pinot Noir,” (but not to be confused with Pinot Blanc, which is another grape entirely), Pinot Beurot (France), Rulander (Germany), Tokay d’Alsace,  

Parentage of the grape: Burgundy as Pinot Gris in the 1300s. 
 
History of the grape: Pinot Gris was planted in Burgundy, France as far back as the 1300s. It then spread through Europe, via Alsace, Switzerland and into Germany, eventually making it to Italy, where it was given the name Pinot Grigio. When Phylloxera hit Burgundy, Pinot Gris with its original characteristics was wiped out and the hybrids grafted with American stock to save the vines were never the same quality, so crops were left to mostly die out. But in the Alsace region, Germany and Italy, the hybrids fared much better and the grape was able to thrive. It was brought to Australia in the 1830s by James Busby, who is credited with being the “Father of Australian Wine.” It was eventually brought over to Read more »

  • Lamberti Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie Santepietre 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Great value here for a sub-15 dollar bottle. The nose is delicate - I picked up some white peach, meyer lemon, marzipan, and sweetgrass. More of the same on the palate - soft and light. Mouthwatering but soft/tangy acidity and surprisingly long length. I really appreciated the length of this simple and delicate wine. Definitely quaffable. Read More
