Pinot Days In the News

As those in the wine industry well know, those who pursue Pinot Noir don’t follow it simply to drink it; they know it is a notoriously difficult and expensive grape to grow. It draws the most skilled and knowledgeable winemakers and offers the broadest stylistic and regional range of all the grape varieties. Thus, it presents itself as a compelling avocation and area of study.​ We became the leading voice of the industry, providing access to “insider” views into wineries and winemaking at wine events, on talk radio, and in industry-focused newsletters. So we invite the world to Pinot Days, because Pinot Noir can change the world, one pretty, little, thin-skinned grape at a time.​
