Recipes to Pair with Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio

Though the grapes are the same (“gris” and “grigio” mean “gray” in French and Italian respectively), they can produce different styles of wine depending on where they’re grown and how they’re handled in the cellar.

In the Alsace region of France, and in places like Oregon and New Zealand, Pinot Gris typically makes rich wines marked by some spice. The Italian style (Pinot Grigio), meanwhile, tends toward a fresh, crisp, and refreshing style with a lighter body than Oregon or Alsatian Pinot Gris.

Sample either style with seafood and pasta dishes, vegetarian food, and poultry.
