Summary

Grape

Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris' genetic roots can be traced to both France's Burgundy region and southwest Germany, and is a lighter-skinned mutation of the red grape Pinot Noir. Today, there is relatively little Pinot Gris grown in Burgundy, but it has become significant in France's Alsace region, home to some of the world's most lauded versions. It has spread to northern Italy, where it's known as Pinot Grigio, as well as to New World regions including Oregon. It's also still grown in Germany, where it's known as Grauburgunder.
