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.

  • Villa Cappelle Pinot Grigio 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pale straw in color. Youll love the aromas of passionfruit, pear and Golden Delicious apple. The wine is rich and creamy with well-balanced acidity that helps keep the palate refreshed. A long and refreshing citrus finish. Easy pairing for all types of dishes. Read More
