The BC Pinot Noir Celebration was born in 2013 when a collection of passionate Pinot Noir producers across the province came together with a vision to host an intimate group of winemakers and Pinot Noir lovers. The idea was simple – get together for a casual evening of good wine and good food – alongside some healthy discussion on where this variety has come in BC and where it is headed.
