August 18th is another wine holiday... but who's complaining! Pinot Noir is a favorite VinoTeca so much so that we've adopted the nickname 'PinoTeca!' Pinot is a varietal indigenous to Burgundy, France but is planted throughout the world despite the fact that it is one the most difficult to cultivate. Pinot grows in tight clusters that are susceptible to rot. The thin skinned varietal produces low yielding, low tannin juice with not a ton of complexities. Terrior and winemaking are necessary to produce the wine that we are all familiar with.
But Pinot is not alone in its family. It's sisters Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc will not be ignored! So, we are going to add them to this weekends tasting as well.
