Pinot Gris is a wine whose strong personality pairs with richly flavored dishes. Philippines wine supplier Manila wine shop discusses wine by the grape variety Pinot Gris.

December 16, 2010

According to celebrated legend, around 1565, vines were brought from the town of Tokay, Hungary by the Baron Lazare of Schwendi, who served the Austrian house during its conflict against the Turks. A landowner in Bade and Alsace, he ordered that these vines be planted in Kientzheim (where his castle remains today as property of the Brotherhood of Saint Etienne). It is true that at this time, the wine producing regions of Europe dreamed of producing Hungarian Tokay, a much-appreciated fortified wine produced from the grape varietal Furmint. However, according to the theses of several experts in ampelography (vine identification), it is likely that the varietal brought by Lazare of Schwendi was not related to the famous wine of Hungary. Pinot Gris, originally from Burgundy and notable for its qualities and ability to produce very concentrated wines, had been substituted under the name Grauer Tokayer. In addition to these scientific and taste factors, it is the tantalizing story of its various designations that was to capture the attention of the wine world. Referred to as Grauer Tokayer before 1970, Pinot Gris was successively named Tokay Gris, then Tokay d’Alsace, followed by Tokay Pinot Gris, and finally, as of April 1, 2007, Pinot Gris. As with Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat, it is authorized in the production of the entire range of AOC Alsace wines, as well as for late harvest and Sélections de Grains Nobles wines.
