Pasadena PinotFest arrives once again

Pinot Noir on the vineHas an entire year rolled around already?

At any rate, it’s once again time for the annual Pasadena PinotFest (the fourth, actually) which kicks off Jan. 15 with a five-course dinner at Altadena Town & Country Club. Each course is cooked by a local chef and paired with a Pinot Noir producer.

Chefs involved include AKA Bistro and Bistro 45’s James Labrinus, the Raymond’s Tim Guiltinan, and Noir Food & Wine’s Claud Beltran. And Pinot producers pouring their juice include Hartley Ostini Hitching Post Winery, Clos Pepe Vineyards, and Williams Selyem.

Part of the proceeds for the $149 dinner ticket help Los Angeles County families in need.

But the dinner isn't the only event.

Weekly Pinot tasting events at $15 per person follow for a month, and Saturday afternoon, Feb. 11, a grand public tasting at the Altadena Town & Country Club will feature up to 100 wines. That tasting costs $89 per person, a bit more for those who fancy hanging around the "VIP" lounge. 

If learning more about Pinot Noir happens to feature on your new year’s resolutions, this event is for you.

For more information and tickets, call (626) 795-7199 or go to pasadenapinotfest.com.
