Pinot Grigio


It grows in  both dry and marly ground as well as  in  originally alluvial terrains.
The bunch is small, cylindrical and very compact with succulent little oval berries.
The fine waxy skin turns a rosy grey colour when ripe.


It arrived from France, unquestionably at the end of the 1800s and it spread first in Piedmont and Trentino-Alto Adige and then slowly throughout the Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Lombardy regions, and today can also be found in other regions of Italy.
It is said that the credit for its introduction into Italy should go to General Emilio de Sambuy who brought it from Burgundy to his farm near Cuneo.
