- Pinot grigio is a European grape (vitis vinifera) and is a mutation of the red wine
grape Pinot Noir. The grapes can be grey, red or even black. Grigio means grey
in Italian. Grown also in France where it is called Pinot gris. The French style
may be aged in oak.

are combined into one product.

tanks for a crisp wine with floral aromas.

preserves the floral and fruity aromas.
