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.

But in the Alsace region, Germany and Italy, the hybrids fared much better and the grape was able to thrive.

    Snoothrank:

    This is a beautiful wine in its richness and certainly to be prized in its personality and meaning. I was given a bottle of this by Mr. Trimbach when I explained that my great-grandmother's name was Jeanne. Of course, this bottle was shared with her and made it all the better. Read More

  • Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Valdadige Portico Dei Leoni 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Nice light golden color. Good fruity nose. Very smooth. First sip is quite pleasing. Almost a slight effervescent sense to it. Smooth and easy on the tongue, not too harsh or biting. Transitions quite nicely into a subtle finish. Not to acidic, not to harsh. The flavors could last a bit longer in the end, it all disappears rather quickly; really... Read More

  • I was drawn to wine because I was looking for cheap flights around the world.I love that in a $20 bottle of Chablis I can taste limestone and minerals from northern Burgundy. I have never been to Spain, but I've gulped Rioja till 4AM at a West Village tapas bar and paid for it dearly with mad, mad hangovers the next day (and night). I tasted Ma... Read More

  • Voga Pinot Grigio 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is a great Pinot Grigio for the price of $12. A friend recently said to me, "Voga isn't wine. Its liquid candy." It made me chuckle. He didn't mean this was a sweet wine. Its definitely not. Crisp and refreshing. Like a Pinot Grigio should be. Read More
