Great white wine for your summer dishes. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio come from the same grape. The Pinot Grigio ripens quite quickly. The flavor depends on the grape-growing region.
Pinot Grigio tends to be lighter-bodied and crisp, with strong fruit and floral notes. Pinot Gris is more full-bodied than its Italian counterpart, with a deeper, richer flavor, and even spicy notes depending on the winemaker in particular. Additionally, Pinot Grigio is typically drier than Pinot Gris.
A warm summer evening, a cold glass of Pinot Grigio and a light dinner al fresco. Sounds like heaven. This is the season for Pinot Grigio, one of America’s favorite white wines.
