Blending Trials: Pinot Noir

Date/Time
Date(s) - 03/09/2019
3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Location
Grant St Winery

(Note: this blending trial is open to Pinot Noir side bet shareholders only. It does NOT count as a maintenance shift!)

With superhuman discipline in monastic silence (for the first 5 minutes, anyway), we’ll begin by assessing our two base Pinots: the Wadenswil and Pommard clones. Then we’ll try a few possible blends, trying to find a sum greater than the parts.

Once we settle on a final blend, we’ll then immediately make that blend, moving the wines out of their Pigs and into barrel for maturation until our main bottling in August.

  • 6 people max (including Matt)
  • Assume 2 to 3 hours
  • No perfume, cologne, etc, please
  • For the racking/blending into barrel afterward, bring rubber boots and clothing you can get a little winey
  • Bring a snack to share if you like (optional)

Note: unlike maintenance shifts, please sign up every person attending (that is, 1 if only you; 2 if you’re signing up for both you and the person with whom you’re splitting a share).


This event is fully booked.

Who's signed up so far:

  • Matt Giraud
  • George Wehn
  • David Ayer
  • Kate Bryant
  • Susan Schin
  • Dina Kempler
