I am thrilled the small town I now call home is resident to the International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC), otherwise known as Planet Earth’s Premier Pinot Noir Event. Yes, it is really called that.
Lots and lots of folks from all over the world are currently descending upon this area in anticipation of next weekend’s Pinot extravaganza; it is slated to be one of the best yet. Hotels and restaurant’s are full and everyone within the city limits is talking about Pinot.
The 2009 Master of Ceremonies is none other than one of my favorite and most respected wine authors, Jancis Robinson. This alone has me thrilled to pieces.
My husband and I will begin the festivities one day early (next Thursday) to attend Youngberg Hill Vineyard’s Pre-IPNC Winemaker’s Dinner. Youngberg Hill happens to be one of the wineries located in the same American Viticultural Area (AVA) as our own property and we are thrilled to be attending this event.
If you are headed into town for the IPNC, join us for what will be an amazing dinner at Youngberg Hill. I have seen the menu…it is nothing short of amazing, prepared by chef Jack Czarnecky of the Joel Palmer House.
I hope we see you there.
Contact Youngberg Hill for availability.
