  • Clash of the Pinots: Oregon vs. The World

    Tickets: $45

    All-inclusive. Price covers food and drink. 21 and over only.

    Long ago when French cuisine ruled the world and American wines were just tendrils on the vine, Burgundy nominated itself as the world's number one region for Pinot Noir. It's always been assumed that a truly extraordinary glass of Pinot Noir needs to taste as close as possible to a bottle you'd uncork on a Burgundian wine terrace. Now Oregon aims to challenge that. Are the characteristics of Burgundy wine really the highest standard that Pinot Noir can achieve, or is it just one of many possible styles? Might Oregon's wine country, which has matured and grown into a style of its own, be as great as Burgundy? In this panel, we'll put the Pinots to the test, and ask some of America's (and Oregon's) foremost experts for their take on this humble grape.
