The 12th annual World of Pinot Noir is right around the corner! We're looking forward to having you join us on the beautiful shores of California’s Central Coast at Shell Beach on March 2 and 3 for what promises to be our best event ever, featuring an array of seminars that are sure to please the Pinot Lover in all of us.

We're bringing back all of the guest-favorite events and making them better than ever! You can't beat the Grand Tastings By The Sea on both Friday and Saturday afternoons, but our pair of Friday seminars that culminate in a wine pairing lunch sure do give them a run for their money. The always-popular Burgundy Seminar on Saturday is back as well, and crammed full of Grand Crus, but the 2012 schedule is packed with new and exciting options to boot!

Choose between a vintage Burgundian Dinner or a Seaside Fête on Avila Beach on Friday night, then on Saturday try Pinot Adventure Camp and go kayaking, hiking or golfing with winemakers. Later that evening, share war stories and wines with winemakers as you join them for dinner at five great Central Coast restaurants. Check out the full list of events at The World of Pinot Noir  for all the details.
 
Grand Tasting tickets are just $95 per person and include Pinot Noir poured by more than 100 wineries with different sets of producers each day, incredible cheese pairings from The Cheese Shop, and tasty delectables from Central City Market, Succulent Café and other local purveyors of specialty food items. Top it all off with a World of Pinot Noir logo crystal glass as a remembrance of the day.
