Pinot Grigio is considered a natural mutation of the noble Pinot Noir grape, with berries often tinged cinnamon brown or even slightly grayish purple. It originated in Burgundy where it is called Pinot Gris (gray) and has been planted in Italy since the last century. Now Pinot Grigio is planted widely throughout northeastern Italy, especially Friuli, Trentino and Alto Adige, where it produces superior wines in the cool climate. We have selected grapes for our Danzante Pinot Grigio from outstanding vineyards located along the alpine foothills of both Friuli and Trentino. We source our Pinot Grigio fruit directly from the small growers, many of who have tilled their small plots for generations.
