    Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Same thing, right? Yes. But also no!

    Technically they’re the same grape but our Kiwi style Gris is so different to the style you’ll find in Italy, particularly in the north east in areas like Veneto/Venice. In fact a little over a third of the world’s Pinot Gris/Grigio is produced in Italy, so if you haven’t tried it before there’s no time like the present!

    The classic Italian Pinot Grigio is a dry, crisp, thirst quenching style with less ripe citrus fruit flavours like lemons and limes. The Kiwi style Pinot Gris has more ripe, stonefruit flavours like nectarines or peaches.

    Great with or without food – if you do want to bust it out at the dinner table try pairing with simple white meat, pasta or fish dishes in light sauces and serve nicely chilled.

    Pronouncing Italian wine names can be a bit of a mouthful, but don’t let it put you off.

    Montecampo (pronounced mon–tee–camp-oh) is the producer
    Pinot Grigio is the grape
    Delle Venezie is the region (Venice, north east Italy)
    IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) is the third level of a four tier Italian wine classification system (DOCG, DOC, IGP/IGT and finally Vino da Tavola, table wine or as we call it…plonk for plonkers!)
