Pinot gris, a wine from Alsace France Vineyards

Pinot gris is a grapes, and also an Alsatian wine.

A major grape in Alsace, grown on 13.9% of the region’s vineyard surface in 2006, the Pinot gris wine produced here are markedly different from Pinot gris found elsewhere. The cool climate of Alsace and warm volcanic soils are particularly well suited for Pinot gris, with its dry autumns allowing plenty of time for the grapes to hang on the vines, often resulting in wines of very powerful flavours.
