National Pinot Noir Day
Pinot is a wonderful wine but can be temperamental. It is widely considered to be one of the most indulgent wines, thanks to its rich color and complex flavor. Its velvety flavor, which is elegant and berry-lieu, makes it a perfect addition to any occasion. National Pinot Noir Day is a celebration of this wine and the regions in which it is grown.
Pinot Noir is a wine that deserves a day of its own. Pinot Noir gets its name from the dark grapes and pine-cone-shaped clusters that they grow on the vine. The grape with the same name is mainly grown in Burgundy, France. However, Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA, and Walker Bay, South Africa, both grow large amounts of Pinot Noir. It is not an easy task to grow Pinot Noir. These grapes can be difficult to grow and are very tricky to make wine from.
This is perhaps the right way to make a wine that is rich and complex. The grape skin is thin and doesn’t provide the same protection as thicker skinned grapes. It can also be finicky in the aging process and often unpredictable and uneven. To prevent rot, tight clusters need to be managed. This often requires careful management of the canopy.
The wine is worth it for those who are willing and able to take the risk. National Pinot Noir Day celebrates the effort required to make this wine, as well as the delicious bounty that results.
