While the Grand Tasting is amazing, my favorite portion is the actual summit. Here many examples of Pinot Noir are amassed, disguised in color coded wrappers and we are set loose upon them like quiet,but hungry wine wolves.
Okay, maybe just me.
But it is super fun to be able to try so many different examples blind. I am always surprised and delighted with my new discoveries. Affairs of the Vine
The whole agenda is here:
Pinot Noir Showdown ~ A Blind Tasting
Pinot Noir Workshops
Sparkling Wine Tasting
5:30-6:00 PM -
Grand Awards Tasting & Ceremony
6:00 -8:30 PM
You can get tickets for just the evening tasting if that is all your schedule will allow. The Bay Area's favorite meteorologist and celebrated wine aficionado, Spencer Christian of KGO/ABC will emcee the Grand Awards Tasting & Ceremony. Top Pinot Noir winemakers will showcase their wines with a pinot-friendly selection of light hors d'oeuvres. The winners will be unveiled and final results will be announced by wine lover, Mr. Christian at 8:00 PM.
Then, BrixChick Heidi and I will stagger off to sober up. We hope to see you there!
