Pinot Noir

FPO

Pinot noir is one of the most complex of all varieties. These wines span the full spectrum between red and black fruit, frequently accented by a pronounced spiciness that suggests cinnamon, sassafras, or mint. Body can be full and rich but not heavy, with substantial flavor despite its delicacy. Oregon Pinots are usually fresher than their California counterparts, with higher acidity, and often more intensity fruity than Burgundies.

In late 1985, an informal group of Oregon wine-lovers, winemakers, restaurateurs, and retailers envisioned a premier Pinot noir specific event, to be held in the heart of Oregon wine country. Each year since the first annual event was held in 1987, the IPNC has evolved and matured, with a commitment to staying fresh, innovative, and relevant.

In addition, a group of Willamette Valley wineries cam together to educate the trade about Oregon Pinot noir. Each year, fifty Oregon wineries join together to bring the Oregon Pinot Camp adventure to invited members of the wine trade.
