Around the year 1565, vine plants were brought from the town of Tokaj in Hungary. Before 1870 it was called "Grauer Tokayer". Then the name became Tokay Gris, Tokay d'Alsace, Tokay Pinot Gris and finally, since 1 April 2007, Pinot Gris.
The wine has a golden yellow color with pink tones. Complex woody aromas with notes of apricot. Round, light, soft and very fresh.
The wine goes well as an apéritif, with Foie Gras, white and red meat. The wine also goes well with exotic dishes or sweet and spicy combinations.
