We’re back with Part II of our coverage of the 2008 World of Pinot Noir. Without a doubt, this annual Pinot Noir spectatular is considered to be a “must attend” for devotees of the grape. Join us as we hear more from wine columnist Laurie Daniel, and we’ll check in with the Iron Sommelier Challenge - where sommeliers compare food and wine matches. In addition, we’ll spend some time with Burgundian producer Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier and the Burghound Allen Meadows, plus visit with Central Coast producers Lane Tanner and James Ontiveros, and still more Pinot producers from around the world (how about Pinot from Tazmania and British Columbia).
With seminars ranging from Riedel glassware to a full-on discussion of new world vs. old world clones, as well as an in-depth examination of the “left coast” terroir, and a close look at Oregon’s Pinot focus, you’ll see why a full immersion event such as this can do more to awaken your total Pinot Noir experience.
