Calling all Pinot Noir lovers!! I’ve just heard through the grapevine (excuse the use of my favourite pun) that the rocking Pinot Noir festival, Pinot Palooza is coming to Perth.
Pinot Palooza is a wine, food and music experience not to miss which will feature the best Pinot Noir from some of the top producers in the Southern Hemisphere. In total there will be 150 of the world’s best ranging from light, ethereal and graceful, all the way through to the ‘take no prisoners’, in your face, mouthful of flavour wines that this pernicious variety can achieve.
This Pinot festival, presented by the team at Bottle shop Concepts was a sell-out in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in 2014 – which gives it some definite wine cred.
Bottle Shop Concepts also do the legendary wine festival – Game of Rhones – which I have heard so much about and really that it to makes it to Perth in the future. I recently read Willunga Wino’s blog post on the Game of Rhones festival which made me totally salivate!
What is Pinot Palooza?
It is a festival for die-hard wine lovers to pay worship to the elegant and sophisticated grape Pinot Noir. It’s a day to taste, indulge and experience some of the masterfully made Aussie and Kiwi Pinot’s alongside dining on delicious food and rocking out to great music.
