To celebrate Pinot Noir we’re having informal tastings at our shop, No.1 Castle Gate, each Saturday. Come and join us to learn more.

Affectionately known as “the connoisseurs grape” this fussy little variety needs more care and attention in the vineyard than any other. Thankfully the wine-maker’s skill and patience is amply rewarded as we hope to show you through these stunning wines.

Top Five Facts on Pinot Noir
