About Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio: is there a difference?

Often associated with France, Pinot Gris is quite the world traveller. The grape variety can be found today in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Canada, Chile and even Italy. Robust and round with a long finish, it has the distinction of being one of the few varieties entitled to use the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. It is also used for late harvest and noble grape selection wines. It should not be confused with Pinot Grigio, a type of white wine made from the same grape variety, often associated with Italy but produced in a number of other countries, and that is even available as a sparkling wine and a rosé! Drier and more acidic, this very popular wine is synonymous with the pleasures of la dolce vita. So, do you prefer Gris or Grigio?

Gins: revolution to evolution

Here as in other parts of the world, gin is making a splash with a wave of innovations. It is the flagship of a small revolution in the realm of locally-produced spirits which are ringing up major sales especially among millennials. Several iconic brands will be participating in this year’s event, so it’s a chance to (re)discover them!
