Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are two similar kinds of wine from the same variety of grape. This kind of grape is usually white in color and has a grayish or brownish skin. The grape is said to have come from the Burgundian Pinot family in France. However, the name given to the wines made from this type of grape in France is Pinot Gris. Moreover, Italy also made exactly this kind of wine, and the credit is given to them for making it popularly known.

Taking the two wines into consideration now, Pinot Grigio has a light body and is crisp with stone fruit and floral aromas, plus a bit of spicy. On the contrary, Pinot Gris wines are full-bodied and richer plus a viscous texture. They also have cellaring and high aging potential. Majorly, Pinot Gris is from Alsace, the German border in the northeastern part of France. On the other hand, Pinot Grigio is from Friuli, the border of Slovenia and Austria, in the northeastern part of Italy.
