23rd Annual Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival
Now in its 23rd year, the Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival will celebrate the region’s signature grape on May 14, 15 and 16, 2021. The festival takes place throughout Anderson Valley but the largest event, the grand tasting, will move to a new location at Scharffenberger Cellars.
By hosting the event at a sparkling wine house, the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association hopes to highlight Pinot Noir’s sparkling history in the Valley, alongside its exceptional still wines. In addition to the new location, the festival will also feature a VIP Bubble Lounge sponsored by the Roederer Estate Family of Wines (with wines from Roederer Estate, Scharffenberger Cellars and Champagne Louis Roederer), and an in-depth look at the evolution of sparkling Pinot Noir in Anderson Valley during Friday’s educational seminars.
