Chardonnay, the variety associated with white Burgundy, is found in almost every wine-producing country in the world and is most often seen as a varietal wine. Pinot Gris (or Pinot Grigio) is also found in vineyards across the world, but is most famously grown in Alsace, France, and Italy's Alto Adige region. Together, the two varieties combine to make simple white wines, or more complex sparkling wines.
