The movie Sideways made it famous, but you should discover for yourself what this subtle, finicky, gorgeous, medium bodied red wine is all about in this tour of some of northern California's best pinot noir producers.
We'll travel through the heart of Pinot-dom in Dry Creek and West Sonoma.
All the wineries we visit offer wines made 100% from certified organic grapes, as we don't like to think about the 450,000 pounds of Roundup (and worse chemicals) nonorganic growers pour into California ecosystems each year.
The wineries we visit have all been highly acclaimed by leading wine critics. They range from rustic and rural (think misty cool climate vineyards in winter to picnic heaven in summer).
Included: guide services. Not included: food, tasting fees or transportation (I can arrange transport at a discounted rate).
