Pinot Grigio

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.

  • Oak Grove Reserve Pinot Grigio 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Just what you'd expect for an $8 pinot grigio. Fairly simple, light bodied and quick to fade. Not much of a nose at all, but there's a bit of lemon and some honeysuckle with low to medium acidity. Read More

  • Chateau Roc de Levraut Bordeaux Superieur 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy on the nose and slightly vegetal with hints of beetroot and older wood laying under sassafras laced aromas of black cherry and plum with just a hint of mocha. Smooth and moderately rich in the mouth, this retains an austere quality in the mouth though there is no shortage of fruit. Black plums and black currants are wrapped up with subtl... Read More

  • Elk Cove Pinot Gris 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is a really tasty Pinot Gris from Willamette. Similar to a high end Napa Sauv Blanc with soft lemon pith, ripe green apple, a touch of white grapefruit, nice mouth feel, really nice acidity, and a fairly long finish. Read More

  • Sockeye Winery Pinot Grigio Columbia Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Grass, lemon, and peach collide on the nose and palate. Distant hints of citrus, apple, still more lemon. A delicious and acidic summer wine. Read More

  • Sockeye Winery Pinot Grigio Columbia Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Steely, yet rich aromas of peach, apricot and lemon. Palate is fresh and lively, acidic but not overly so, with lemon zest, peaches, and the slightest bit of an autolytic finish. Nice wine. Read More

  • Principessa V.S.Q. Emilia-Romagna

    Snoothrank:

    The bubbles of the territory according Luretta. Method classic white grape that builds on the twenty-year experience of the winery, offering a sparkling fresh drinking but never boring with enticing floral aromas and a palate the flavor intoxicating. Read More

  • Erath Pinot Gris 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Golden color. Banana and lemon zest on nose. A little weight and some spice on palate. Soft and fruity, but not big. Could age well. Read More
