CBC HOSTS WINE TASTING SERIES
PINOT GRIGIO 5/17/08, 7:30-9:00 pm at CBC
Community Boating Center (CBC) will host a series of wine tasting/contests starting with a Pinot Grigio varietal event on 5/17!
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are actually the same white grape, with two different names. In Italy and California this wine is known as pinot grigio, while in Oregon and France it's known as pinot gris. Other countries use the terms interchangeably. The pinot grigio grape is in essence a white mutation of the pinot noir grape, which is red. Most pinot grigio wines are created in Italy. The Italian version of pinot grigio is typically dry (not sweet) and light, with a mineral taste to it. Californian variants of pinot grigio tend to be richer in flavor, but still have the mineral taste. Often, they finish with a lemony or citrusy flavor. French pinot gris wines tend to come from the Alsace region. These are more fruity and flowery than their Italian counterparts, though they still have that mineral aroma. Flavors can range from peach to grapefruit to melon.
Thank you to everyone who has made this series of events a great success! Look forward to seeing you there!
