Vivino's Regional Styles

Californian Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris is a zesty white wine that originates in Alsace but grows all over the world. The greyish-blue grape grows well in the cooler areas of California's Central Coast.

Most Pinot Gris is dry with notes of stone fruit, and is more neutral than Moscato or Riesling. There are many different styles of Pinot Gris which vary based on the climate and terroir (the complete natural environment of the wine).

Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape. Pinot Grigio is the Italian clone of the Alsatian Pinot Gris. While they are the same grape they do infer different styles. Pinot Gris is full-bodied, a little more viscous and more conducive to aging. Pinot Grigio is light, crisp and ready to go straight out of the supermarket.

Along with Chardonnay and White Zinfandel, Pinot Gris often referred to as a “Mom Wine” given its popularity with the American middle-aged female population in the 80s and 90s.

Think fish for your Pinot Gris. A little ceviche would be superb or perhaps some salmon or sashimi. American Pinot Gris tends to be a little more robust in the face of food and can withstand creamier dishes.
