Celebrating its 12 year, the Annual Pinot Noir Summit will take place on Sunday, March 9, 2014 at The Presidio Golden Gate Club in San Francisco. If you enjoy Pinot Noir this is the place to be, over 420 wines from top producers were judged on a period of three months at the Pinot Noir Shootout, each wine being tasted a minimum of two times. A unique feature of this competition is that fewer wines are tasted at one sitting, never more than 32 wines a day, allowing more time to devote to fully scrutinizing each wine without palate fatigue.
The gold and silver award winners from the shootout final, selected from a prestigious group of 50 wine professionals, writers and serious wine lovers; will be featured at the 2014 Pinot Noir Summit. For a list of the 2014 Pinot Noir to be offer on the Summit visit winners.
