Pinot Grigio is a wine that needs no introduction. While the grape started life in France as Pinot Gris, it's in Italy where it really made its name, giving us a light, crisp white wine that's perfect on a sunny day. Italian Pinot Grigio, from areas like Veneto, Lombardy and Alto Adige, is loved for its sharp and refreshing taste. Common flavours include green apple, pear and citrus, often with a mineral hint. It pairs perfectly with light dishes, especially seafood, making it a worldwide favourite.
