  • 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!

34th Annual
International Pinot Noir Celebration

2020 Event Postponed
July 23-25, 2021
at Linfield College
McMinnville, Oregon

The IPNC is a three-day event, famous around the globe, as a mecca for lovers of Pinot noir and northwest cuisine. During the weekend, world-renowned winemakers, northwest chefs, esteemed media, epicures, and wine lovers will gather in McMinnville, Oregon, for three days of exploring Pinot noir, savoring unforgettable meals, and learning and celebrating with luminaries of the food and wine world.

Along with the speakers and chefs, it is the relaxing and festive atmosphere that sets the IPNC apart from all other wine events. Whether tasting Grand Cru Burgundy or walking through Oregon vineyards with the grower who planted them, guests find themselves unwinding in picturesque Oregon wine country for what wine legend Jancis Robinson described as “one of the most enjoyable wine weekends in the world”.

Michael Fay

It was always Michael Fay’s dream to return to the Pacific Northwest and Oregon specifically as the Willamette Valley is the spiritual home and quality standard for Pinot Noir in North America. In May of 2017, Michael started in the role of Director of Winemaking and Viticulture at Domaine Serene Winery & Vineyards. Michael oversees the talented team of winemakers and viticulturalists at both Domaine Serene, located in the beautiful Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley, and Château de la Crée in the Santenay region of Burgundy’s historic Côte de Beaune.

Shane Moore

Gran Moraine winemaker Shane Moore toes the line of recklessness to create wines that capture the best of our Yamhill-Carlton AVA vineyards. The diversity of sun exposures, elevations, rootstocks, and clones in our estate vineyards translate into a varied lineup of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rosé of Pinot Noir and Brut Rosé—each with its own personality. Uniting them all is a lively, linear grace that brightens the palate and lightens the soul.

Only a few more days until we connect Burgundy and Oregon for Episode III. Visit for details today!
