Pinot Gris / Pinot Grigio
Gris and Grigio are in fact the same variety and both names mean grey in French and Italian respectively. Which is somewhat deceptive because the grapes can be almost blue when ripe. The great wines of Alsace and North Eastern Italy are often made from this variety. It is being widely adopted around the world too. AKA Grauburgunder.
