University of Pinot

2017 University of Pinot Courses To Be Announced

Our guests consistently ask for a wide variety of informative seminars and tastings. We will once again offer eight different classes to choose from at the 2017 IPNC. All classes are held in the early afternoon following lunch and are included in the full weekend ticket price. Courses are held concurrently and guests will attend only their top seminar choice. All featured winery representatives and media guests are also encouraged to enroll, as this will not interfere with weekend responsibilities.
