Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris
Pinot gris (also known as pinot grigio) is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot noir grape, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (gris meaning "grey" in French) but the grape can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance.
The word pinot, which comes from the word meaning "pine cone" in French, could have been given to it because the grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters. The wines produced from this grape also vary in colour from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it is one of the more popular grapes for orange wine.
The clone of Pinot gris grown in Italy is known as Pinot grigio. Many pioneers are included in the discovery of this rare blend such as the Taub Family or the owners of Santa Margarita, today the number 1 imported pinot gris is Cavit.
