Taste of Pigs & Pinot

Friday evening’s festival kickoff is the lively Taste of Pigs & Pinot where guests sample 60 highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir wines competing in the Pinot Cup competition, both from Sonoma County and around the world. Two Rosé wines will be offered in addition to the lineup of 60 Pinot Noirs treating guests to a “white wine” twist on Pinot Noir. Tastings are served alongside a variety of pork dishes, including homemade sausages, charcuterie, grilled pork, patés and other special creations from Chef Palmer, Dry Creek Kitchen, guest celebrity chefs, and local Healdsburg restaurants including Barndiva, Spoonbar, and Valette.

Pinot Cup

The Pinot Cup is our annual wine competition where 60 hand-picked Pinot Noirs compete in a blind-tasting competition in hopes to be named “the best of the best” by a renowned judging panel including Sarah Doyle, Wine and Spirits Journalist at The Press Democrat and Sonoma Magazine, Debbie Zachareas, Partner at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant and David Yoshida, Master Sommelier and last year’s Ultimate Pinot Smackdown Champion. The winner and runner-up will be revealed at Friday’s Taste of Pigs & Pinot event.
