ach year during the last full weekend of July, wine and food luminaries from all corners of the globe congregate in McMinnville, Oregon for the International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC).

IPNC guests have the unique chance to taste, learn, and celebrate with over 60 of the world's premier Pinot noir producers, 40 of the Northwest's top chefs, as well as esteemed journalists and fellow wine devotees.
