Icône le saviez-vous ?

Did you know ?

In Alsace, Pinot gris was once called Tokay. A famous legend claims that around 1565 vine plants were brought back from the town of Tokay in Hungary by the Baron Lazare de Schwendi. But according to some theories, it is likely that the grape variety brought back by Lazarus of Schwendi did not correspond to the famous Hungarian wine. Called Grauer Tokayer before 1870, Pinot gris was then successively named Tokay gris, Tokay d’Alsace, Tokay Pinot gris and finally, since April 1st 2007 Pinot gris.
