The World of Pinot Noir 2009 Kicks off



We have attended the World
of Pinot Noir for years. If you are
are a "Pinot Phile" this is the place
to be.




This annual event takes place the first full weekend in March and includes two days of in-depth Tasting Seminars, Grand Tastings (each with a unique roster of wineries), a Featured Tasting with a guest Burgundian producer and two Gala Pinot Noir Dinners featuring prominent guest chefs. These extraordinary food and wine extravaganzas will be hosted by participating wineries and feature an outstanding panel of sommeliers from across the U.S.

Friday Focus Tasting Tents on the Bluffs ~ The Cliffs Resort 3:00pm - 6:00pm
Cost: $95.00

Join more than 95 Pinot Noir producers from across the globe showing both current releases and library selections in three tasting tents located on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Savor gourmet appetizers prepared by Chef Gregg Wangard, Chef José Garcia and The Culinary Team of The Cliffs Resort. Sample exceptional cheeses from The Cheese Shop Carmel/The Cheese Shop Santa Barbara.
The ticket price includes all of the above and a Riedel Crystal Pinot Noir glass. A Silent Auction of Exceptional magnums, 3 Liters and 750's will take place in the Big Tent from 3:00pm - 5:30pm


Saturday Tasting by the Sea & The Grand Ballroom ~ The Cliffs Resort 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Cost: $95.00

Join more than 100 Pinot Noir producers from across the globe showing both current releases and library selections in three tasting tents located on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and in The Grand Ballroom of The Cliffs Resort.
Savor gourmet appetizers prepared by Chef Gregg Wangard, Chef José Garcia and The Culinary Team of The Cliffs Resort. Sample exceptional cheeses from The Cheese Shop Carmel/The Cheese Shop Santa Barbara.

In addition to the Focus tasting and the grand tasting you can participate in a number of seminars, dinners and visits to wineries. This is the best event by far that we have attended with some of the World's best Pinot Noirs overlooking the Cliffs and the Pacific Ocean. Vino Las Vegas will be there once again and will bring you interesting interviews and some big surprises .
