THE GRAPE: Pinot Grigio (Italian) or Pinot Gris (French) is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera with a particular pink-gray colored skin Pinot grigio originates from Burgundy (France). The origin of the French name "pinot" comes from the word "pin", meaning "pine". In fact, the shape of its cluster looks like a small pine cone, a characteristic that unites all the vines with the name "pinot". The cultivation of Pinot Grigio is particularly complex and requires special conditions and attention not only in the countryside but also in the cellar.
