The list of Pinot Noir clones seems almost endless – Pommard, Dijon, 667, 777, Calera, Swan, 114, 115, Mt. Eden, Pisoni, 828, 113, etc, etc. What’s the difference between a clone and a selection, and what does that have to do with the final blend of the wine? How are we supposed to make sense of it all? Well, getting answers can be relatively easy – easy that is, when you have an emertius professor from UC Davis leading the discussion panel.
Join us at a 2006 World of Pinot Noir seminar on clones, where we hear from Carole Meredith and a panel of Vanessa Wong, Greg Brewer, Tony Rynders, and Ken Bernards, as they traipse through the myriad of clones available to today’s winegrowers and winemakers.
