Burch Family Wines International Pinot Noir Tasting 2012

Pinot Noir lovers are yet again invited to the highlight of the year to join Burch Family Wines celebrate the intriguing variety at the International Pinot Noir Tasting to be held at the picturesque Howard Park Winery, Margaret River on Saturday, 6 October 2012.

A very impressive line-up of 20 Pinot Noirs will be featured, with highly regarded and interesting producers from around the world including New Zealand, France, USA, South Africa and of course our very own Australian producers who are working away at this very complex grape variety.

This event evolved from the opportunity to present the diversity of Pinot Noir, to experience Pinot from various terroir and to listen to esteemed experts in the field. James Halliday, wine luminary and noted Pinot Noir lover will be present to add his many years of experience, as well as Janice McDonald, Burch Family Wines Senior Winemaker and Jeff Burch, CEO. Jeff is an avowed Pinot expert dedicated to ensuring West Australians are producing Pinot worthy of attention. Burch Family Wines has over the last few years developed the Mount Barrow site in the Great Southern just for this purpose.

Herb Faust, West Australian chef personality will create a sumptuous lunch with wines from the stable of Burch Family Wines. Entertainment will be provided by the Mike Goodwin band, as guests dance away the afternoon. All in all, a day of total engagement and celebration of all good things that accompany wine – delicious food, iconic wines, informed speakers and great music.
