22nd Annual Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival

11am–3pm Grand Tasting in Camp Navarro, set amidst the spectacular beauty of Anderson Valley’s vineyards and towering redwood trees.

Taste Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (plus rose and sparkling wines) from more than 50 producers, enjoy mouth-watering food pairings by the best local chefs and caterers, and listen to live music while bidding on exquisite auction lots for local charity.

This event is uncrowded and unpretentious, and the Pinots are spectacular, so reserve your tickets (and lodging) now.  Music lovers will be happy to learn about an added bonus – this year Camp Navarro will host a concert on Saturday evening.
