  • The International Pinot Noir Celebration each July is the best consumer wine event in the United States.

  • 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

We've enjoyed reading about the wonderful memories and meals being shared by fans of @paleysplace and of Vitaly and Kimberly Paley. Stellar human beings, they have been incredible supporters of IPNC over the years. IPNC has been lucky to share Vitaly's talents with guests a dozen times since his first appearance in 1998. He also served on the IPNC Board of Directors from 2001-2004. Vitaly's participation has greatly contributed to IPNC's acclaimed culinary reputation while his mentorship has developed a new generation of cooking talent in the Pacific Northwest. Cheers to you, Vitaly! Our best wishes to you and Kimberly as you embark upon your next adventure.  Photo credit: Carolyn Wells Kramer, 2019
With all this talk of Holiday wine pairings, we can't help but daydream about the legendary IPNC Salmon Bake. Watch for updates here about à la carte Salmon Bake tickets. We release a handful to the public each year, but for now the only way to attend is by purchasing tickets to the Full Weekend. Next year's IPNC is going to be unforgettable, from the Salmon Bake to Passport to Pinot... and every activity in between. We are well over three-quarters of the way to a sold-out weekend and encourage you to buy tickets while you still can!
We couldn't do what we do without our fabulous Maître D's. It's been a while since we've all been together, popping bottles and making memories. We're looking forward to getting the D's back together again ⁠— and welcoming new faces. They all exemplify the dedication and passion of so many individuals that goes into making the IPNC weekend the experience of a lifetime. If you haven't secured your tickets for the full weekend yet, just use the link in our profile or visit www.ipnc.org!  📸: CWK Photography
