February 21, 2017
One of our favorite events, World of Pinot Noir, is coming up in just a few weeks! The much-anticipated annual global summit and celebration of Pinot Noir will be held at the Bacara Resort & Spa March 3-4 in Santa Barbara, California, and will feature nearly 200 wineries.
The aim of WOPN is to bring Pinot Noir producers from the most exceptional and unique regions in the world together with Pinot Noir enthusiasts for a weekend of celebration and education on the shores of California's beautiful Central Coast.
“This is one of the premier wine events in the world, and it comes at a time when Pinot Noir’s popularity is at an all-time high and significant innovations are occurring with every vintage,” says Meridith May, publisher and editorial director of The SOMM Journal, The Tasting Panel Magazine, and The Clever Root. “We are proud to sponsor and report on this gathering of the best Pinot Noir producers on the planet.”
In addition to covering the emerging trends and innovations occurring with the ever-popular grape, The SOMM Journal presents a panel discussion titled “Around the World with Pinot Noir – International Pinots with SOMM Journal”. Explore a variety of Pinot Noirs that showcase the diversity of the grape and the range of styles across several continents through a tasting of the following wines:
Domaine de la Vougeraie Terres de Famille (France) 2013
