“The Devil made Pinot Noir” – André Tchelistcheff  

We skip Blanc, Gris, and all other Pinot as we fade to Noir. Pinot Noir is grown all over the world, though it is difficult and finicky. Learn its origins, other homes, and characteristics. Discover how it varies based on climate, soils, and traditions in various international regions through a guided tasting for 5-6 wines. Despite the differences, you will find common threads. This class is a must for Pinot lovers and those seeking to improve their wine tasting skills and knowledge. 

This workshop may be taken as part of our World Varietal Series or individually a la carté. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on.  

Group discounts are available.  Contact help@sfwineschool.com for more information.
