Q. Are Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris the same grape?

A. Yes. In Italy the grape is called Pinot Grigio but in France it's called Pinot Gris. However, in Italy Pinot Grigio is a simple, easy drinking wine unlike in France where they like Pinot Gris to be a bit more refined. French wine makers tend to produce a more flavorful, richer style of wine.
