Pinot Noir isn't a grape variety; it's an addiction.
Once you find yourself ensconced in Pinot's warm embrace, there is little hope. No matter whether you're pouring drinks or emptying them yourself, there are few more dreamy beverages than a silken glass of Pinot Noir perfection.
But Pinot Noir is more than just a sensual seductress; it's a fascinating grape. Thought to be just one or two generations away from wild plants, Pinot Noir has a 2,000-year history that has given endless scope for mutations, spawning Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Blanc & Pinot Teinturier, among others (as you can see below).
