Pinot Days

Pinot Days is a non-profit dedicated to the promotion of one of our very favorite things – domestic pinot noir.The majority of the producers Pinot Days features fall into the “boutique” category; they are not big corporations with their own marketing teams.Rather, the winemaker and/or the winery owner often make up the entire staff and thus, they are limited in their ability to bring their beautiful wines to you, the interested wine lover.That’s where Pinot Days comes in!


Pinot Days is a wine event that celebrates pinot noir in its many styles, ranging from modern to earthy to elegant. Unlike wine events that appeal to a narrow customer base featuring wines more alike than different, Pinot Days brings together pinot producers representing every California pinot style, appellation and price point, as well as a number of pinots from Oregon, Germany, New Zealand and Burgundy. Pinot Days also celebrates the passionate people who make pinot noir, which is no easy variety of grape with which to contend, but one that has the innate ability to surpass all other grape varieties.Pinot Days will enable you to explore new producers, find wines you love and can afford, and become a pinot devotee if you are not one already.


From the Grand Festival to the Winemakers Dinner to the more intimate tastings, each of the Pinot Days events will be educational, stimulating and fun. Our goal is to make each event accessible to everyone by keeping the costs reasonable and the attitude casual. Pinot Days will never become an elitist event affordable only to the rich, nor will it become an “insider” event accessible only to industry folks and pinot geeks like us. Rather, we invite insiders to come and enjoy, and we encourage those new to pinot noir – those of you who do not yet know the depth, breadth and sheer loveliness of our noblest grape – to come and taste for yourselves.And meet the winemakers, who are some of the most interesting, passionate, gifted and colorful people we know.We hope to see you there.
