Pinot Blanc

Pinot Bianco is a member of the Pinot family (Pinot Blanc), probably introduced to Italy in the late 1800s. A white mutation of the Pinot Noir, it is widely cultivated throughout the peninsula, particularly in the north. Until a few years ago, it was often confused with Chardonnay. It is sometimes known as Borgogna Bianco and, in Italy’s German speaking Alto Adige, it is called Weissburgunder.
