Individual tickets on sale for 2017 International Pinot Noir Conference in Oregon
McMINNVILLE, Ore. — A few tickets to one of the Northwest wine industry’s most delicious events, the Salmon Bake for the 2017 International Pinot Noir Conference, have been released by organizers of the annual celebration in Oregon’s North Willamette Valley.
The Saturday, July 29, evening on the campus of Linfield College pairs slabs of wild salmon barbecued in traditional fashion across alder stakes with Pinot Noir from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. An all-star lineup of wine country chefs presents the side dishes and sweets, and the four-hour party is accompanied by local music. A ticket to the Salmon Bake is $225.
A limited number of tickets to the signature Sunday Passport to Pinot walk-around tasting under Oak Grove also are available for $125. Billed as Oregon’s largest outdoor tasting of Pinot Noir, more than 70 of the participating wineries from throughout the world set up alongside 15 of the Northwest’s most decorated chefs for the afternoon finale to the 31st annual IPNC. Cost includes a stem of Riedel’s tribute to Oregon Pinot Noir.
It is worth noting that Full Weekend registration, at $1,295, does not include the Sunday Passport to Pinot, in large part because all wines served that afternoon will have been served at the Alfresco Tastings earlier in the weekend.
Pinot Noir producers from seven states and 13 countries have poured at IPNC since the event was created in 1987. More than 800 Pinotphiles register for the full weekend experience, and the Sunday Passport attracts an additional attendance of 550.
