Third Annual Pinot Days New York City to Assemble 40 Pinot Noir Producers and Their Wines for a Unique Wine Event

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 8, 2014) - More than 100 acclaimed pinots will be poured at the 3rd Annual Pinot Days New York City, January 18th, 1pm-4:00pm at City Winery. A renowned pinot noir wine event with annual tastings in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco, Pinot Days connects wine enthusiasts with winemakers creating a unique opportunity for new and seasoned wine lovers to experience, enjoy and deepen their knowledge of pinot noir. The two-day New York City event includes our Winemaker "Table Hop" dinner on January 17th and the Grand Festival at City Winery in SoHo, Manhattan on January 18th. The Pinot Days Grand Festival is a wine tasting event which gives wine lovers the opportunity to experience and enjoy over 100 of the world's best pinot noirs and interact directly with the more than 45 acclaimed winemakers who produce them. Event tickets can be purchased at www.pinotdays.com.

Founded by The Bay Area Wine Project with the ultimate goal of advancing the profile of pinot noir, Pinot Days is a 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 is different. It goes deeper. It carries the whole story in the bottle. It has such stylistic and regional diversity that you can taste 100 pinots, side by side, and it's never redundant. When you know this for yourself, its cult following makes a lot of sense." 

Pinot Days New York City wine events include a Winemakers Dinner at City Winery on January 17th featuring a four-course Mediterranean-influenced dinner paired with the wines from 8 notable pinot noir producers in an intimate gathering, and a VIP Diversity Seminar prior to Saturday's Grand Festival.
