Marin County Pinot Noir…TASTE
For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area (you know who you are) there is a very interesting tasting coming up next weekend. The Marin County Pinot Noir producers will be pouring their wines as a benefit for the Marin Agricultural Land Trust and as a way to speak the word about this region just south of Sonoma County that is beginning to churn out a decent supply of lovely Pinot Noir.

Escalle Winery, Larkspur, California
5pm. Tickets: $30 to $40

Among the wineries pouring Pinot from this relatively untapped region are Sean Thackrey; Pey-Marin Vineyards; Dutton-Goldfield; Stubbs Vineyard; Vision Cellars, Point Reyes Vineyards; and Corda Winery.
