WTF IS PINOT PALOOZA?
Good question. Well it started, like all good stories, over a bottle of wine in a restaurant where many were singing the praises of a certain grape variety called Pinot Noir.
Founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2012, we were fed up of the usual ‘death my master class’ classroom style of wine event so we called our winemaking mates in Australia and New Zealand and simple said “we want to do a wine tasting event called Pinot Palooza. But make it fun”
Fast forward to today and the event is now help in 13 cities and 6 countries including AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, JAPAN and now, the USA.
13 CITIES, 6 COUNTRIES
We’re a grassroots movement of likeminded wine folk hell bent on celebrating the people, place and personalities of the greater global wine community; especially Pinot Noir makers. We live to celebrate the best small, family owned, hands on wine makers who are all about making the best wine they can with as little intervention as possible. Organics and sustainability are what we’re about.
Since 2012 we’ve grown and grown yet remain 100% independent, published a magazine and regularly get out and visit the wine folk we champion. We’re all about collaboration, not competition and invite any an all to join us in a wine party to celebrate our favourite grape.
With a rocking soundtrack of course …
