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,

History of the grape: Pinot Gris was planted in Burgundy, France as far back as the 1300s.

  • Mumm Napa Champagne Blend Napa Valley Cuvée Napa Brut Prestige NV

    Snoothrank:
