  • It's the tops; there is nothing as well-run and instructive

    The New York Times - Frank Prial
  • The IPNC offers great foods, fantastic wines, and interesting lectures all wrapped up in a very casual, relaxed atmosphere that simply makes it a joy to attend.

    Vinography - Alder Yarrow
  • The IPNC consistently attracts the brightest stars in the wine world... perhaps best of all is the opportunity to interact with pinot producers from all of the world's greatest regions.

  • I'd recommend IPNC as an intro for casual Pinot lovers or a full-on master class for winemakers. Actually, I'd say it's required!

    Sunset Magazine - Sara Schneider
  • IPNC is one of those rare wine gatherings that works on every level

    The New York Times - Eric Asimov
  • One of the most enjoyable wine weekends in the world

  • Despite Oregonians' inherent modesty and laid-back-to-the-point-of-sleepy nature, they manage to throw one hell of a festival
