“Pinot Days is coming to Southern California in two weeks! After six big events in San Francisco and three in Chicago, the winemakers are loading up and heading over the Grapevine, so to speak. 93 pinot producers (and counting) will show up and pour over 400 acclaimed pinots to their fan base. Eve’s readers can get tickets at a 10% discount by entering the code EVEPINOTSC10.” – Lisa Rigisich, Producer, Pinot Days

New and seasoned Pinot lovers will be able to sample up to 400 pinots from every important domestic pinot noir region, from the Russian River Valley to the Santa Lucia Highlands, Oregon to Carneros, the Anderson Valley to the Sonoma Coast to the Santa Rita Hills. Come to Barker Hangar to taste the highly acclaimed 2007 vintage, and talk with the gifted winemakers who created these beautiful wines.
