Pinot Gris is the same grape as Pinot Grigio. In France, the variety is called Gris; in Italy, it is called Grigio. Not only are the two names different, so are the styles. In Italy’s northeast – the Veneto and Friuli and Alto Adige, the wine is strictly dry and often lower in alcohol. In France’s Alsace, the wine may be dry or sweet depending on the producer’s style. The Weinbach style leans to the sweet camp, depending on the vintage, but while this wine is somewhat sweet, it is so beautifully balanced it is very easy to forget that!
