The super-lux face of Pinot Grigio
Yes, it’s true that technically Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape. The difference now is a stylistic one, Pinot Gris providing a lot more texture and flavour than Pinot Grigio, making Pinot Gris a more indulgent option with more versatility. It’s still light and fragrant, but that weight makes it a better food wine, great for entertaining with. Traditionally Pinot Gris is from Alsace and Pinot Grigio from Italy but now the use of the terms defines that style, wherever the wines come from.
