Pinot Pioneers with Anne Krebiehl MW – Monday 23rd October

Pinot Noir touches wine lovers in a way that few other grape varieties manage. But beyond its Burgundian heartland, which are the regions that are blazing a trail with the variety today?  

Even in 2023, with centuries of viticultural history behind us, it is still possible to encounter real pioneers in the wine world. Consider than until 1965, the Willamette Valley was known for growing hazelnuts rather than vines. That is until David Lett of Eyrie Vineyards, AKA “Papa Pinot”,  swooped in to change the area’s trajectory forever, and establish it among the world’s leading sources of fine Pinot.  

Our host, master of wine Anne Krebiehl, has put together a fantastic array of Pinot Noirs from across the globe made by intrepid winemakers with the determination and vision to plant Pinot in remote and unlikely locales – with eye-catching results.  

The always-entertaining Anne invites Members to discover the stories and wines behind these brave and often contrarian winemakers in what is sure to be a convivial evening celebrating the darling grape of the wine world.
