Get your Gris on with these 9 wines
Pinot Gris has developed into one of the most popular white wines in the Pacific Northwest.
The grape traditionally associated with Italy (where it’s called Pinot Grigio) and the Alsace region of France has been the No. 1 white variety of Oregon. And these days, Washington produces even more Pinot Gris than its neighbor to the south.
And some would argue that Pinot Gris is a perfect wine for the Pacific Northwest, that its bright acidity and flavors match perfectly with fresh regional cuisine, particularly seafood.
Here are nine examples we’ve tasted in recent weeks – six of which earned our “Best Buy!” distinction for being $15 or less.
