The Prince of Pinot and the 2007 IPNC


Starting in 1987, the International Pinot Noir Celebration is held annually in McMinnville, Oregon, on the beautiful grounds of Linfield College. Arguably the benchmark in Pinot Noir festivals, this brings in participating wineries from Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, and of course the U.S., along with seminars, winemaker discussion panels, bus tours, lunches and dinners – making this a full immersion into the international world of Pinot Noir.
