Scheduled for Saturday, November 15th, 1pm – 5pm at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
The Grand Festival will showcase 50 producers of Pinot Noir – the largest single gathering of Pinot producers outside of California, as well as its most varied. Attendees will be able to sample up to 100 Pinots from every important region in California, Oregon, New Zealand, and Burgundy.
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.”
Enjoy countless Pinots and sample a variety of artisan cheeses & other specialty foods. Also scheduled: a Pinot production demonstration in which attendees can learn about the making of Pinot from the vine to bottling and every step in between, as well as a number of Pinots for auction, benefiting various charities.
Tickets are $50 per person, and available via the Pinot Days site.
