The first weekend in March signals the World of Pinot Noir. Held on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this event includes two days of in-depth Tasting Seminars, Grand Tastings (each with a unique roster of wineries), a Featured Tasting with a guest Burgundian producer and two Pinot Noir Dinners featuring prominent guest chefs. These food and wine extravaganzas will be hosted by participating wineries and feature an outstanding panel of sommeliers from across the U.S.

Join us for Part 1, as we talk with wine columnist Laurie Daniel, local producers as well as vintners from around the world (how about Pinot from Switzerland and New Zealand). We’ll hear from attendees and presenters about what makes this event special, and we even check in on a Riedel seminar led by Georg Riedel to see how the shape of stemware can make Pinot smell and taste different.

    You guys are getting really good with your videos. Why not film and show the whole Georg Ridel seminar. I was luck enough to attend one several years ago and it was very informative. Georg puts on a good show and without a doubt proved that stemwear makes a difference.

    I hope that someday Graperadio will be able to have seminar with Georg or another member of the Riedel Corporation. I would love to hear the group go through a tasting with the different glasses and understand why the glass styles work and why.
