Meet 150 Pinot Producers for Tasting Day in San FranciscoPinot winemakers call it the little grape with the big personality, and they’re passionate about having fun pouring, tasting, and discussing hundreds of their wines from California, Oregon, New Zealand, and Burgundy. Pinot Days is when vineyard owners and producers themselves do the pouring.
The 9th annual strictly Pinot Noir event hits San Francisco on June 30, 2013, and you’re invited. The 150 winemakers from near and far are gathering to pour for visitors at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion at the waterfront, Marina Blvd and Buchanan Street off the Embarcadero.
What makes this event unique is that the public has the opportunity to personally meet the actual vineyard owners and winemakers themselves as they pour. It’s the world’s largest Pinot Noir gathering, intended to share, to teach, to savor, to celebrate with others the remarkable diversity and character of this famous thin-skinned grape.
Tickets are available for Pinot Days tastings at 2 p.m. to 5 pm. at $75.00 per person. A program to include seminars beginning at noon is available at $125.00.
