Pinot Blanc


The Pinot Blanc grape is used to produce light, dry, pleasant white wines.  It is grown in Alsace (France), California (USA), Italy, Germany and Austria.  It has been grown in Burgundy and was sometimes mistaken for Chardonnay.  The two varieties look very similar and there are some similarities in the wines they make.  Pinot Blanc is often referred to as "poor man's Chardonnay".  These wines should be consumed young before the fruit flavors diminish. 

In Austria, the Pinot Blanc grape is known locally as Weissburgunder.
