A BC Pinot Noir Celebration.
With a cast of All-Stars.
Everyone is talking about and buying BC Pinot Noir these days.
If you ask growers and winemakers, they are pretty much agreed that BC is perfect for growing and harvesting Pinot Noir.
We truly hope you find your new best Pinot here with TRR.
The fourth annual BC Pinot Noir Celebration brings together 34 of the province’s best Pinot Noir producers to celebrate the varietal that is defining the region.
Co-Organizer JAK Meyer said
“This is an important time in BC, where Pinot Noir is starting to emerge as a signature grape with lots of different expressions. More wineries are coming on board as they find that their land is well suited to the grape. The BC Pinot Noir Celebration is not a competition, but rather a way to showcase what BC can do.”
