Join Fork and Saber as we team up with wine expert and founder of executive wine seminars Bob Millman. Bob has amassed a wealth of knowledge after decades spent in the wine industry. We are excited to join him in a passionate discussion and really dig deep into how terroir affects this grape.

There can be no question that Pinot Noir has moved into 1st place in terms of popularity among red wine drinkers. The reasons are not hard to find: lovely, fragrant berry bouquet, soft tannins and plate refreshing acidity mark many well-made Pinot Noirs. Burgundy is the home to Pinot Noir. Cistercian Monks planted the grape throughout the region more than a thousand years ago! In the new world, Oregon has proved exceptionally hospitable to Pinot Noir. From the 1st winery in 1966, there are now more than 400 Oregon wineries making Pinot Noir. A great American growth story!

In this tasting, you will experience 8 world class wines 4 Burgundies and 4 American. Pinot is a tricky grape to get right. It takes a lot of work and skill to produce wines which capture the inherent qualities of the grapes. When it goes right, Pinots give immense vinous pleasure.
