Pinot Days Festival Promises a Four-Day Crash Course in Everyone's Favorite Varietal
Varietal tasting time is here, winos! Get your sip on at the Pinot (that'd be Noir) Days Festival, which runs tonight through Sunday. The main event is Sunday's four-hour grand tasting at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Fort Mason seems to be considered the primo (and rather obvious) spot for such events. Tickets are $50 for the grand tasting, with 400 samples from 200 Pinot Noir producers. Advanced tickets are highly recommended. Other related Pinot Days events include schmantzy dinners at Pres a Vi in the Presidio, as well as concerts. Cost: $80-$150, which suggests there's more than one way to get your sip on.
