GET READY LONDON. HERE IS YOUR “UnPLUGGED” WINE LIST!
And sheesh … it’s a good one
Over Pinot Palooza’s 13 city tour, there will be opportunity to so many different Pinots from so many producers representing so many regions. The sheer volume alone can be intimidating, let alone trying to pick a favourite.
The best way is to approach it as you would a music festival. Think of the different styles or producers as stages, each one representing a certain genre of music or musician.
Each has its own unique character and what you like or don’t like is all down to how you feel and what you’re seeking at that particular moment in time.
Spend time at the main stage, but make sure you head to the fringe and emerging stages for something new or a little different. Up for a splurge? Go VIP style. Up for something fun? The Dance Tent’s where it’s at. And when you feel like taking it a little easy, the Chill Out Room’s waiting for you.
This is how you pinot, with your hands in the air like you just don’t care!
This is the headline act which you absolutely have to check out. If you haven’t heard of them, you soon will. This one’s a must.
This is one you’ll cough up good dollars for.
A little left field, alternative, unique, intriguing and captivating. Not mainstream and all the better for it.
This is your new, up-and-coming Pinot artist, or one who’s undergone reinvention.
Chill Out Room:
Super chilled, easy going, relaxed and super lo-fi.
Wines that are bright, fun and make you want to move.
