About

Pinot Grigio is one of Italy's most popular white wines.

Italian Pinot Grigio and French Pinot Gris use the same grapes, but the Italian wine is dry and crisp while the french is sweeter and more aromatic. The Italian grapes are harvested before they mature to reduce sugar in favor of acid.

Pinot Grigio is cultivated many places in Italy, but the most prominent regions are in the northeastern regions:

Veneto, Trentino, Alto Adige and Venezie (Friuli-Venezia Giulia).
