Pinot Days

pinot daysMany of the events are already sold out, but you can still get your $50 ticket for the July 1st Grand Festival at Pinot Days at Fort Mason (alas, I will be busy moving):

Sunday’s Grand Tasting will showcase 170+ producers of pinot noir. This will be San Francisco’s largest single gathering of pinot producers ever. Consumers will be able to sample up to 400 pinots from every important region in California, Oregon, New Zealand and Burgundy.

...This year we will feature three different Focus Tastings, The Best of Anderson Valley, 2004 and 2005 Rosella's and Pisoni Comparison and The Best of Sonoma COast and Russian River Valley. Below are the details of the three Focus Tastings.
