SoCal Exhibitors

The Pinot Days festivals bring winemakers and attendees together, creating a venue for communication between the two and enabling attendees to learn, both intellectually and aesthetically. Our SoCal event gathers Pinot producers from Oregon, Northern and Southern California, and a few from abroad to pour and tell their stories. Together, we will share up to 150 highly acclaimed Pinots from every important Pinot Noir region, from Santa Rita Hills in Oregon to Anderson Valley to New Zealand. And Saturday’s Grand Tasting will showcase over 70 phenomenal producers of Pinot Noir. Discover and celebrate Pinot Noir in its many diverse styles, ranging from modern to earthy to elegant.

Diversity. Character. Enjoyment.
