2019 International Pinot Noir Celebration

Alfresco Tasting at the 2019 International Pinot Noir Celebration Alfresco Tasting at the 2019 International Pinot Noir Celebration

This year Mt. Beautiful was honored to have been invited back to the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC) hosted on the Linfield College Campus in McMinnville Oregon.

It had been roughly five years since they were last selected as a featured winery at this well regarded event entirely focused on Pinot Noir. Each year IPNC's organizers carefully select and invite a diverse representation of Pinot Noir producers from around the globe, amounting to over fifty wineries.

The daily itinerary for the event is impressive; peppered with activities ranging from on-campus seminars, off-site vineyard tours, a Grand Dinner, alfresco tastings, a heavily attended "Salmon Bake," a Champagne Brunch, and a large Pinot Noir tasting on the closing day of the event that is open to those who did not sign up for the entire weekend event.
