The Many Faces of Pinot

OWS Niagara, October 28 – Let us show you, through a structured tasting of eight wines (whites, reds and others) what Pinot is all about! Often called “the heartbreak grape,” pinot noir is the diva of grape varietals, highly reflective of its terroir, requiring a cool climate and special handling.

Best known from Bourgogne (France) it also thrives in Oregon and, as it happens, in Niagara. It is a staple in sparkling wine. The grape mutates easily and thus we have pinot noir, pinot blanc, pinot gris, pinot meunier and more. Our guest speaker for the evening has been winning more and more awards since taking over the winemaking and vineyard management at Rockway Vineyards.
