The Story

The Paolovino winery is from the Veneto region of North Eastern Italy, and was one of the first Italian producers into the Australian market. They came to Australia with fresh, everyday inexpensive Pinot Grigio’s and really helped show Australian’s a new way of fresh wine drinking. This wine is known as an IGT or Indicazione Geografica Tipica, meaning in simple terms, this is wine typical of that region as is found in everyday drinking in Italian homes and restaurants.

M+Q Notes

Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape variety. It is a white grape with a grayish/brownish pink skin, hence the name Gris or Grey in French. The grape originated in France, it’s from the Burgundian Pinot family. It is known as Gris in Alsace and Grigio in Italy, where it is grown widely. Grigio will be harvested earlier than Gris, resulting in a crisp, lean dry white and Gris being harvested later for richer textural notes. Floral and citrus notes with faint honeyed and mineral notes, finishing super crisp and dry.
