Pinot Grigio - The History of the Drink

Pinot Grigio is a beloved white wine all over the world. It is light, fresh, and easy to drink, with flavors of lemon, lime, green apple, and honeysuckle. Pinot Grigio is a popular grape variety, suitable for both special occasions and everyday dinners. Many brands produce this wine at various prices, and it is readily available in Moscow liquor stores.

The Pinot Grigio grape variety was the result of a mutation of the Pinot Noir vine, resulting in berries with gray-blue skin. The grape originated in Burgundy, France and was introduced to other countries in the 14th century. Pinot Grigio has the most vineyards in northern Italy, where it is suitable for stony plantations with a temperate climate. It is mainly used to produce dry white wine.

Pinot Grigio is a white, dry wine with an alcohol content of around 11%. It usually contains between 5 to 10 g/L of sugar, and it is harvested when the berries are optimally ripe. After gentle pressing, the grape juice is fermented in steel tanks with strict temperature control. The color of the wine depends on aging and winemaking techniques used. Pinot Grigio has a fruity aroma with hints of spice and flowers. It has a light and balanced taste, making it an easy-to-drink wine.

Four basic types of Pinot Grigio wine can be bought in Moscow liquor stores:
  • Dry mineral
  • Dry fruit
  • Sweet fruity
  • Pink
Mineral white wine is characterized by high acidity, a neutral flavor, and fruity notes. Dry fruit wine is similar in taste to the classic version, with additional notes of peach, apricot, lime, and apple. Sweet Pinot is characterized by honey and citrus notes, with occasional hints of pineapple and tropical fruits. Pink wine is infused on the mash for a long time, which gives it a light pink color and the taste of cherries, cranberries, and raspberries.

Pinot Grigio pairs well with seafood, especially shellfish, grilled mussels, or crispy shrimp. It also goes well with fresh salads and lighter appetizers. Due to its high acidity, it is best not served with citrus or tomato-based dishes. It is also a good pairing with sushi, light baked fish with cream sauce, and chicken or turkey.
