Pinot Grigio

By Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

Pinot Grigio | Featured in Vol 7, Issue 3 of Alcoholmanac Magazine

Pinot Grigio is, I think, often misunderstood and overlooked—like a middle child in a large family. The Grigios, or Gris, in the market are not like those your mother may remember, typecast to suffer a fate similar to rosé. Our market was once flooded with overproduced, inexpensive and, thus, mediocre Pinot Grigio. Luckily for us, demand for good Grigio and Gris has teetered in our favor!

Over the last decade, the ones on the market these days will definitely change your mind about this wine. New World wines are taking a page from the Old World book—Old World Gris and Grigios have been keeping it real for centuries.

Tasting Notes: In terms of style, the only major difference between Gris and Grigio is, basically, the end result. The grape is the same, aptly named after the grey color of the skin. Grape or wine origins distinguishes one name over another—like Syrah and Shiraz. Pinot Grigio is from Italy, whereas Pinot Gris is a French or Alsatian one, and within those particular regions there are, let's say, different dialects in terms of personality. In New World areas, the name they opt to use is more or less reflexive and is based on characteristics of those two main regions.
