Pinot Noir Showdown: Oregon vs. California (GVL)

Save the Date!

Pinot Noir is a thin-skinned grape that tends to produce wines that exhibit red fruit, soft tannins and a light color. Let’s explore the wonders of this phenomenal but finicky grape, capable of producing some of the most elegant and sensual wines on the planet. We’ll taste California and Oregon wines side by side and let you be the judge of which wines you think are best!

 

Our very special guest will be James Corbin, regional manager for Grapevine Distributing and a 20+ year veteran of the wine industry. James is a great friend of Foxcroft and has been sharing the glories of Pinot Noir for more than a decade at Foxcroft Wine Co. stores in Charlotte. This is always one of our most popular events of the year and we’re so proud to be able to bring the excitement to Greenville, SC!
