National Pinot Noir Day

On August 18th, wine enthusiasts will enjoy one of the wine world's most versatile wines on National Pinot Noir Day.


Since Pinot Noir's high acidity and lower tannins, it pairs well with food. Pinot noir is produced by wineries around the world using red wine grapes and mainly the Pinot Noir varietal.

The dry wine has hints of cherry and raspberry, as well as earthy flavors and floral notes. It's also one of the world's best red wines. One Pinot Noir grown and produced in Burgundy, France, bears the region's name. More Pinot Noir is also produced in France than in any other region. However, today, the grape is grown all around the world. The flavors are affected by the soil, climate, and processing methods.
