5TH ANNUAL PINOT DAYS GRAND FESTIVAL PUBLIC TASTING is rapidly approaching so hurry and buy your ticket for Sunday’s Grand Tasting which 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. They 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. They will also offer a number of pinots for auction, benefiting various charities.
