Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio, is one of the traditional grape varieties grown in the Alsatian region of France and the north east of Italy. Pinot Gris is ever-increasing in popularity and plantings in the cooler, wine-producing areas of Australia.

When grown outside of Europe, the labelling choice between Gris and Grigio is really stylistic – Gris suggesting a white wine of reasonable body and structure, and spicy, floral aromatics; Grigio, a leaner, lighter drink, with crisp acidity.

Both Gris and Grigio mean grey – the name referring to the grey / pink bloom of the grape variety’s skin. If the winemaker chooses to ferment with some skin contact, the final wine may have an attractive pinky / brassy colour.
