Wine enthusiasts, producers, and more will be here at Navy Pier to share their passion for wine at Pinot Days Chicago.
Returning on April 16, 2016, join us in welcoming some of the best domestic and international pinot noir crafters for a day of wine tasting, food samplings, and learning from the experts themselves. This annual event celebrates the art of red wine in the gorgeous Lakeview Terrace for a tasting experience like no other. Most participants featured on the wine floor are boutique-sized wineries representing a wide range of West Coast and European pinot noir styles. Pinot Days Chicago gives you one day, one place, one chance to find new wines you can get to know and love!
This year, the wine festival celebrates its 9th annual gathering in Lakeview Terrace. Take in amazing Lake Michigan views to accompany your favorite grape blend.
The event will feature pinot experts from 65 different wineries largely from California, Oregon, yet as far as New Zealand and Burgundy. The grand festival, sublime tastings, and dinner pairings are the perfect opportunity to get to know your wines, learn about pinot from the crafters themselves and become a pinot enthusiast one glass at a time. You’ll be able to paint the town with all things pinot! Activities include the Winemaker Dinners, “Meet the Winemaker” sessions and food pairings at nearby wine bars and restaurants. Additionally, the event includes partnerships with boutique retail stores for interactive tastings with your favorite shopping mates. The event will feature pinots from producers like Bouchaine Napa Vineyard, Cornerstone Cellars Oregon, Kendric Vineyards and many more!
The public and early entry tasting events are limited, so purchase tickets soon! Pinot noir devotees can have a more in-depth experience at the VIP Seminar Session with early access to the festival to get the wine conversations and enthusiasm going. Will you be there to raise a glass?
