World of Pinot Noir



Looking for a fun and exciting way to meet some of the most influential people in the wine industry? This exciting 3-day event relies heavily on the efforts of our wonderful team of volunteers. Together, we create an unforgettable experience for our wineries, sommeliers, wine enthusiasts and guests.

Nearly 3,000 wine enthusiasts, wineries, winemakers, renowned chefs, sommeliers and leading wine scholars from all over the world, gather to celebrate Pinot Noir. World of Pinot Noir offers educational seminars, elegant lunches and dinners, and two days of Grand Tastings.

In return for their efforts, volunteers will be offered a ticket to their choice of one event: Thursday Opening Night Party, Friday Grand Tasting OR Saturday Grand Tasting. The chosen event (compensation for their time and work) will NOT be on the day scheduled to volunteer. (ex: If you are working Friday, you will receive a ticket to the Saturday Grand Tasting event).

Volunteers will also receive a World of Pinot Noir t-shirt, a unique way to meet the most influential people in the wine industry and an opportunity to expand one’s own knowledge of world-renowned Pinot Noir.
