  • 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”.

Mother Nature put on a show for us last night, bringing much-needed rain with a side dish of drama. ⛈ We are thankful for the relief it is bringing our wine community after nearly two weeks of fires and smoky skies!

📡🍷Less than a week until Episode II of the Oregon Pinot Broadcast! This Sunday, September 6th at 5pm PST. 📡🍷 

🍷This intimate discussion will bring together four of New Zealand's top winemakers to explore sustainability in grape-growing and winemaking. 🌿 As a global leader in sustainability, it is only natural that we looked to New Zealand to hear about innovations to preserve - and even improve - the lands in which grapes are grown, for generations of winemakers to come. 

🍷 Purchase a special 4-pack of wines from Valley Wine Merchants to gain access to the Broadcast (for our US-based audience), which showcases the four winemakers' talents and will arrive at your door after being a part of this fascinating conversation: (link in profile)

🍷 Alternately, and available to our entire global audience, your US$20 donation to the IPNC Brighter Days Fund is your ticket to join: (link in profile)

See you on Sunday!
