"Pinot Days is the largest gathering of Pinot Noir producers in the world. It has to be; pinot noir is
exceptionally stylistically diverse, and our aim is to give every pinot lover a place to "go deep" within
the style you love. And, if you're open to venturing outside of your comfort zone, you can experience,
and quite possibly love, other styles as well. To this end we gather hundreds of pinot noir winemakers
to pour hundreds of pinots that range from the picture of elegance to forward and "wow." You can't try
them all – don't try – it's not the point! The point is to follow your palette like a North Star, and
experience this beautiful little grape in as many forms and styles as compel you. Ignore the critics;
ask folks in the crowd, "Who have you tried? What do you like? " Pinot noir is way more than a grape
variety –it's an art form. It is an endlessly fascinating intellectual and aesthetic pursuit for people who
want to savor the good things in life. So we invite the world to Pinot Days, because pinot noir can
change the world, one pretty, little, thin-skinned grape at a time." Steven and Lisa Rigisich
