26 January 2012Pinot Celebration Preview

The Central Otago Pinot Noir Celebration 2012 commences tomorrow.  This looks like being a great event, as rather than being a workshop it is a celebration of the magic grape with a combination of relaxed organised tastings and food events to showcase our local food and the wines we make.

The Celebration is held on the interesting cycle of 2 years on, one year off.  The year off coincides with the running of the Pinot Conferences held in Wellington.  This gives the counter point of a celebration as opposed to a conference.

This is our first year and we look forward to sharing our wines with wine industry VIPs, critics and Pinot Noir lovers for all over New Zealand and overseas.

In particular I'm looking forward to the 'Lunch in Downtown Queenstown' at Les Alpes, in Church Street where we will present our Pinot Gris 2010 as one of the wines selected to match a specially created menu for the Pinot Celebration delegates.
