Pinot Days 2014 Report

Pinot Days in San Francisco brings together close to 100 wineries from California and a few from Oregon. Having 100 wineries all working with the same grape varietal is fascinating and challenging as you decide: Which wineries to try; How to compare them; What story to look for. Since wine has truth, it should tell its own story.

Donkey & Goat Tasting (Wine, Not Game)

Walking into the winery with barrels stacked up both sides of the walls, there were tables for pouring with guests two and three deep, a narrow channel in between was a slow passage from the front to the back lot where a band and a food truck waited. I become uncomfortable in crowds and stood with my back to a wall and enjoyed my wine. As I was raising my glass, an eight-year-old girl walked past raising an ice cream cone. I thought it unusual for a child to be there until I went to the back lot where families were sitting in the sun at picnic tables, with children playing bocce ball, a band in the background, a food truck, and, of course, an ice cream stand. The philosophy of the winemakers was evident there: They were not making cocktail wines for adult parties, but rather, wine to enjoy with food and family, all together in a fun environment.
