World of Pinot Noir

Registration opens October 1, 2007 for next year’s World of Pinot Noir, March 7 & 8, 2008 at The Cliffs Resort in Shell Beach, California. The emphasis this year is on “World” as winemakers from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Chile and Tasmania will be presenting their wines. Seminars include the study of clone 115 Pinot Noirs grown in several regions, AVAs of Oregon, old clones/old vines versus new clones/new vines, and a focused stemware presentation with Georg Riedel. Over 160 wineries will be pouring at one of the two walk-around focus tastings in the big tent by the ocean. Saturday features a special Burgundy seminar on the wines of Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier. The event wraps up with a Paulée Dinner at Au Bon Climat.
