Pinot Grigio is a mutated clone of Pinot Noir whose skin, instead of a red color, has a greyish hue—thus the name Grigio, Italian for grey. Originally from France, where it is known as Pinot Gris, the grape was taken to Italy where it thrives in the hillside vineyards of the Veneto region of Northeast Italy, producing a crisp, light, dry wine with pronounced fruity and floral aromas and flavors.
