A white grape varietal with a pinkish-grey skin. In French, the word "gris," which is translated "grey" accounts for the grayish-blue color of the fruit. However, Pinot Grigio grapes can also have the appearance of pink, black or even a white skin.

With its crisp stone fruit and bright citrus flavors, Livermore Valley Pinot Grigio adds a refreshing verve to most any light meal.

Try Pinot Grigio with pasta with a fresh tomato-based sauce or spicy noodleswith shrimp.
