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.

  • Dorigati Pinot Grigio 2007

    Snoothrank:

    From vines over 15 years of age grown in alluvial soil, a dollop, about 10% is aged in barrique.Really intense nose of pear, spice, apple, and barrel tones greets the nos. The palate is soft, opulent and easy but there is good focus to the very pure flavors of white peach, pear and almost minty spice. This has a clean and crisp finish, which fee... Read More

  • J Pinot Gris Russian River Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Poured and drank at room temp. Honestly, the nose was rather disappointing. I was struggling to get anything from it. Initially, I was able to sense a hint of pear, and some general light fruit scents, like green apple; but that was it. I kept trying and trying to sniff, but really could get anything else....boo. First taste was fairly smooth an... Read More

  • Three Thieves Pinot Grigio Bandit 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Ok, so this wine is not great. On the positive side, it does come in a juice box - just like you got when you were in 2nd grade. There are about two glasses per juice box, which actually makes it pretty good if you just want a sip of wine without having to open a full bottle. I wouldn't recommend serving this to guests, but it is really pretty p... Read More
