The International Pinot Noir Celebration is an annual event held in Oregon's Wine Country that unites Pinot fans and food lovers from around the world in the spirit of friendship and in celebration of Pinot noir in all its grand diversity. The full event lasts from Friday morning to Sunday noon and included two major outdoor dinners, a vineyard tour and winery lunch, two grand outdoor tastings (35+ pinot producers each!), informative seminars, afternoon activities, etc. As Allen Meadows of Burghound notes, "The IPNC consistently attracts the brightest stars in the wine world...Perhaps best of all is the opportunity to interact with pinot producers from all of the world's greatest regions. The weekend unfolds smoothly from start to finish and seems so effortless that it just leaves you wanting more. If you've never attended the IPNC, I have but one word of advice: go!" The event is held annually on the last weekend of July.
