10:00 am - 11:00 am

Pinot Noir & Chardonnay – the paragons of wine purity and terroir expression - are unquestionably two of the wine world’s most evocative grapes. As expressions of their greatness continue to extend beyond the mother region of Burgundy and into cool climate growing regions around the world, lovers of these varieties can experience more amazing examples of these grapes than ever before. But how do they compare? Which producers are leading the pack in each region? And perhaps most importantly, which are most compelling to you. The Wine Advocate Editor-in-Chief, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, reveals a dozen of her favorite recent Pinot and Chardonnay finds from around the world, including Joseph Phelps Vineyards. Tickets now available
