The Origins of Pinot Grigio
The Pinot Grigio grape traces its origins back to the Burgundy region of France where it is known as Pinot Gris. The grape is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, resulting in a white grape with greyish-blueish skins, hence the name "grigio," which means grey in Italian.
The popularity of Pinot Grigio soared in the north-eastern regions of Italy, particularly in Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia, where it thrived in the cool climate and limestone-rich soils. Today, Italy remains one of the leading producers of this versatile varietal, known for its vibrant acidity and fruit-forward profile.
