The Best of Pinot Noir
Although the Pinot Noir grape is a fickle vine to tend, the payoff of the grapes is tremendous; producing a fruit-forward, silky smooth wine that leaves a lasting impression on the palate. On Saturday, March 28th, 2015 we invite you to familiarize yourself with the grape and join us for our complimentary tasting, “The Best of Pinot Noir.” Pinot Noir’s storied reputation originated in Burgundy, France, but the grape is cultivated for wine around the world. Guests will be able to sample a variety of bottles while learning about the different flavors that the same grape is capable of producing when grown in different regions. The staff will be pouring our top recommendations from 1:00PM to 5:00PM as they explain the process of growing the grape.
