Also known as “Pinot Gris,” (“gris” is French for gray, you’ll notice that the wine will have a slightly gray tint to it), these wines can vary from the crisp, light, and dry Italian Pinot Gris to the more rich, honey flavored French “Alsatian” style wines (wines made from the Alsace region). U.S. and California Pinot Grigios are rare, and they vary in style from winery to winery. I think that they are perfect for hot summer days.
