Highlights from IPNC Every Summer, over seventy international wineries, fifty celebrated chefs, a small army of sommeliers and wine media, and a few hundred passionate wine lovers descend upon McMinnville, Oregon. This college town in the heart of Oregon wine country is host to the International Pinot Noir Celebration (more commonly shortened to IPNC), a long-standing event that has become the preeminent place-to-be for anyone who considers himself or herself a Pinot Noir fanatic. IPNC’s events include large dinner events, educational seminars, winery visits, and of course prodigious opportunities to taste (or imbibe) Pinot Noir wines from all over the globe.

A standout in the IPNC lineup are the alfresco tastings, during which the event’s featured wineries - hailing from locales such as Burgundy, California, Oregon, Italy, Canada, Argentina, New Zealand, Germany, and elsewhere - pour for attendees in a walk-around, grand tasting format. If you missed IPNC in 2014, here’s a glimpse of a few of the grand tasting highlights. These wines showcase some of the best producers on hand during IPNC, and remind us of the breadth - and the high quality - of Pinot Noir currently available to wine lovers.
