Chicago Booth Alumni Club of San Francisco

October 14, 2011: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Come join a Sommelier-led exploration (followed by a social) and see what all the fuss with Pinot Noir is about. From the hallowed grounds of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in Burgundy to New World offerings in California, Chile, New Zealand, or Oregon, this fickle grape thrives in only under the most nurturing conditions. Also called Spatburgunder in Germany and Pinot Nero in Italy this varietal has more than 200 identifiable clones under different names!
