Seminar Tasting: World of Pinot Noir
Seminar Wine Tasting Thursday, October 21, 6 to 7:30 pm
Location: In stores.
RSVP: Required. Purchase online or call your favorite store.
What do Burgundy, California and Oregon share with the Loire Valley, Italy, Germany, Chile and New Zealand?
They all make exemplary Pinot Noir.
While the Pinot Noirs of the Loire Valley, Alto Adige, Baden, Casablanca and Central Otago lack the heredity of Pinot Noirs from Burgundy and the popularity of Pinot Noirs from California and Oregon, they’re all inextricably bound to their cultures, their histories and the cool climate terroirs of their regions. And while you may not yet know about Pinot Noirs from these far-flung corners of the wine world, at this tasting you’ll discover how they display the benefits of perfectly mature Pinot Noir vines, along with generations of Pinot Noir experience in the cellar. The results are Pinot Noirs offering all the beautiful qualities characteristic of the grape, as well as extraordinary qualities distinctive of their regions.
We don’t just think these wines will surprise you. We think they’re going to blow you away! They’ll expand your worldview of Pinot Noir.
Explore them with us and taste for yourself.
