1. I’m a Pinot Noir whore!
2. It’s the ’1st Annual SoCal Pinot Days and it would be an honor to be a part of the inaugural event!
3. It’s in Barker Hanger … Hello! Only home to the greatest fashion events and sales. Legendary spot!
4. It’s in Santa Monica which means, I can get a tan and do some ‘crazy’ people watching while sipping fabulous Pinots.
5. Did I mention #1?

The look in Miles’s eyes in the vineyard, when he cupped the cluster of ripe pinot noir fruit during that fateful encounter when he realized his real true love will endure long after his ex-wife’s new marriage.
2. As Virginia Madsen would say, “Pinot’s like a thing with [me].”
3. Pinot is amazingly versatile, and t…here’s amazing variation in Pinot Noir from vineyard to vineyard, winery to winery, even in the same appellation and from the same growing season. From light and fruity to dark, heavy and peppery, I love exploring them all.
4. My collection of Julia’s, Barbara’s, Monuments, Pommards, Gary’s, Dundee Hills, and the entire Russian River Valley is dwindling to a cloud of Sea Smoke, so I need to replenish my cellar.
5. Because I love exploring wine, and it would be fun to meet all of you.

1 My boyfriend describes wine as “It tastes good” or “It doesn’t taste good.” We’re slowly working toward, “It tastes like fruit.”
2. I have to take leave without pay at work, so the more opportunities I have to drink wine on a budget the better.
3. Pinot is starting to be one of my “go tos” and getting higher and higher on my chart of … See More favorites. I’d love to learn more about it and the varieties of it as produced around the world.
4. My family and friends look to me to clue them in on what wine is all about…umm…that’s easy, fantastic life experiences with family and friends.
and 5. No Money = No Wine. Please take sympathy!

Craig T.
1. just because I like to win things.

1) You can get drunk and nobody knows who you are.

3) After about 3 tastings, everybody is happy.
4) By the end of the night, everybody has shared their deepest secrets.
5) It’s just plain fun!

1. My very first, once in a life time, big event of the year, to attend the Pinot Days in beautiful Santa Monica
2. Meet the gifted winemakers who created these beautiful wines, not to mention how many (75) producers of Pinot Noir
3. It’s been know that Resveratrol the main ingredient in Pinot Noir is good for your heart
4. Drinking red wine is rich in antioxidants, could this be why I drink more red wine especially Pinot Noir
5. Lastly, to meet Eve Bushman who made it all possible. Thank you!

Pinot is unpredictable date. If you date the Oregon Pinot your in for a surprise, a layer of sophistication coming from a dysfunctional family. If you date an Australian Pinot you’ll have a very bold date. It will be memorable but for the wrong reasons. Your French Burgundy is a predictable date with lots of manners. You’ll have more fun than you think you would have had. California, it depends on which relative, the one in the central valley are young and foolish, you are better off dating the relatives in the hillsides of the North. They are older and wiser and can show you a good time…. OK is class dismissed?


And the winner was:

1. Pinot Noir brings put the color of my eyes.
2. I never feel fully accessorized without a glass of Pinot Noir….
3. I have a two year old; I find that Pinot Noir helps with my parenting skills.
4. It’s easier to say than Sauvignon.
5. Pinot Noir gives me an excuse to break out the (BIG) red wine glasses….
6. And extra credit: Pinot Noir is great hydration after a run.
