Types of Wine: Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio

Find out what pairs with this versatile white wine.

Recipes to Pair with Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio

Though the grapes are the same ("gris" and "grigio" mean "gray" in French and Italian respectively), they can produce different styles of wine depending on where they’re grown and how they're handled in the cellar.

In the Alsace region of France, and in places like Oregon and New Zealand, Pinot Gris typically makes rich wines marked by some spice. The Italian style (Pinot Grigio), meanwhile, tends toward a fresh, crisp, and refreshing style with a lighter body than Oregon or Alsatian Pinot Gris.

Sample either style with seafood and pasta dishes, vegetarian food, and poultry.

    For all the years I've been cooking, using wine and spirits is definitely a new thing for me...there are many different articles here about wines, but the ones that are most familiar to me are the Merlot and Pinot Grigio...they are the ones I am learning with. It's so good to have these informative articles to help those of us who are unfamiliar with using them in our dishes...thanks for the info and inspiration!!! ?
