Pinot Grigio is a white wine made from the Pinot Gris grape. It is light-bodied and has a slightly fruity flavor.
The Pinot Gris grape is thought to have originated in Burgundy, France. The name "pinot gris" means "grayish-black" in French, referring to the skin color of the grape. The grape can also be used to make red wine, but it is most commonly used to make white wine.
Pinot Grigio wines are typically dry and light-bodied. They often have subtle flavors of citrus fruits, melon, and peach. Some Pinot Grigio wines may have a slight spiciness to them. It is a popular choice for a refreshing summertime wine and pairs well with light foods such as salads and seafood.

"Hi l am Wim, sommelier, and wine enthusiast just like you! My fellow sommeliers understand the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature. They know that if wine is too warm, it will lose its flavors and complexities, and if wine is served too cold, it will numb your taste buds. A few world renown sommeliers and myself will explain this further, and share some interesting (taste) case studies."
