Founded by The Bay Area Wine Project with the ultimate goal of advancing the profile of pinot noir, Pinot Days is a three-day celebration of pinot noir and its most brilliant winemakers, the vineyards, the grapes, and the often-bewitching process of urging the noble pinot grape into great wine. At Pinot Days, the winemakers and winery owners do the pouring, creating a uniquely engaging experience where wine enthusiasts can interact, ask questions and learn the stories behind what goes into making great pinot noir.

Pinot Days founder Steven Rigisich said, "Pinot Days is like pinot school. Heartbreak grape 101. You experience the wine both theoretically and in the glass. The winemakers talk about their craft and then you taste, and you realize first-hand the massive impact that region, vision, vintage, clones and a thousand other factors have on a wine. You walk from winery to winery and the diversity is just spellbinding."

Pinot noir is the most versatile red grape variety on the planet. Its range of styles makes it infinitely fascinating to drink and to pair. You can find a pinot to pair with any food, to please any palate, and to match any mood. It is this amazing diversity of style that compels so many to pursue pinot noir so passionately.

Pinot Days Los Angeles wine events include our VIP Diversity Seminar and the now-famed Pinot and Grilled Cheese at The Wine House, which will feature 10 notable pinot noir producers in an intimate gathering with the gifted winemakers who produce them. After the Grand Festival enjoy a pinot-paired dinner at West Restaurant, which will feature 3 acclaimed wineries. Visit for event details.
