Closely related to Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio takes its name from the color of the grape skins, which range from copper to gray. It is thought to have originated from a mutation of the Burgundian variety Pinot Noir, discovered by monks in the 14th century who collected and propagated the grape from just a few cuttings.
