For Pinot Noir producers and proponents alike, the International Pinot Noir Celebration is the hottest ticket around.
Every July, Linfield College in McMinnville becomes headquarters for this legendary event. Winemakers from Europe and both Americas descend on the small liberal arts college campus for three days of Pinot Noir exploration.
Some 60 chefs and more than 70 featured wineries participate, shedding tremendous light on Pinot Noir’s prominence and versatility. We are humbled to take part and couldn’t be happier that the world’s most admired Pinot Noir conclave occurs just a few short miles from our estate.
IPNC features a few signature events, including Passport to Pinot and the Salmon Bake. The former is a sprawling outdoor tasting; the latter is an extravagant feast built around alder-smoked wild salmon and dazzling wines from long-ago vintages.
Established in 1987, IPNC has blossomed into the largest and most revered event of its kind.
