#WineChat #IPNC

winechat pn bottlesLater in the week, I’ll be sipping Pinot Noir and relishing in cuisine prepared by Chef Sunny Jin of Allison Inn and Spa’s JORY restaurant during a pre-IPNC dinner at the gorgeous Stoller Vineyards.  The 27th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC),  taking place at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon, begins on Friday and is a three day food and wine event that focuses on Pinot Noirs from around the world.  The dinner at Stoller is just the beginning of several days filled with outstanding Pinot Noirs and Northwest cuisine, and  I am totally thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to attend such an esteemed and revered event.

Another event I’m delighted to be a part of this week is #WineChat.  In honor of the upcoming IPNC, this Wednesday’s #WineChat (a scheduled weekly wine conversation on Twitter) will focus on Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs.  With a recent invitation to participate in the IPNC #WineChat, host William Allen of Simple Hedonisms will be leading the conversation I’ll be joining in on beginning at 6 pm PST on Wednesday, July 24.  Along with several other wine writers, I’ve received five Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs that we’ll be tasting and discussing during #WineChat:

In fact, I’ll be using these two hashtags throughout the entire IPNC weekend, so follow me along my adventure as I taste and eat my way through three days of what I think will be a little slice of heaven, right here on earth: IPNC.
