Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival
The festival offers a variety of events from the Technical Conference, which tells you how to grow and produce the grape to the more freewheeling social barbecue at the Goldeneye Winery. The grand tasting will be held at Scharffenberger Cellars in Philo and costs $85. On Saturday, May 20, there are six winemaker dinners being held. Each one costs $150 a ticket (the Roederer and Goldeneye dinners are already sold out) and include a decadent assortment of wine and food pairings.
