Dive into Pinot Noir in San Francisco at the upcoming annual Pinot Days in San Francisco June 24th – 28th, 2009. Taste a wide variety of Pinot from producers from various wine regions. Attend winemaker dinners, focus tastings, tours, and much more. If you can’t attend any of the other events throughout this long weekend of Pinot, definitely eek out some time for the Grand Tasting on Sunday. Seedetails below:
Sunday’s Grand Tasting will showcase 200 producers of pinot noir. This is California’s largest single gathering of pinot producers, as well as its most varied. Consumers will be able to sample up to 400 pinots from every important region in California, Oregon, New Zealand, and Burgundy. As Freeman, August West and Sandler winemaker Ed Kurtzman says, “For anyone who already loves Pinot, this is an excellent opportunity to try many new wines as well as some well-established favorites. For those who don’t have a lot of Pinot experience, my bet is that they’ll be in love with this grape by the end of the weekend.”
Meet Ed, Wes Hagen, Adam Lee, Kathleen Inman, Fred Scherrer, Jeff Fink and so many others, enjoy the countless pinots and sample a variety of artisan cheeses & other specialty foods. We will feature a pinot production demonstration in which attendees can learn about the making of pinot from the vine to bottling and every step in between. We will also offer a number of pinots for auction, benefiting various charities.
