'Pinot Days' lands in New York next week

Thanks to John Ogden of Olson Ogden Wines, Pinot Days got on my radar last year with tastings in San Francisco.

It just happens that this year the organizers decided to stage a second event in New York City.Pinot_days_logo

Pinot Days New York starts on April 27th with the Winemaker's Dinner at The Tasting Room ($130 per person, all inclusive).

It continues on Saturday with The Oregon Retrospective at Lunch Time followed by The Best of Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley (3:30-5:30pm) and Best of Santa Rita Hills, Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Maria Valley Horizontal (7-9pm).

If you want to take it all in one serving the Grand Festival Public Tasting on Sunday will give you a chance to taste 140 Pinot Noirs from California, Oregon, Burgundy, New Zealand and Australia for only $50 per person.

Most events take place at Javits Center.

I will share more details on Pinot Days in the coming week.
