The Pittsburgh Wine Festival returns for it’s 13th extravagant year, this coming Thursday, May 7th, 2015 at Heinz Field. Come honor the art of the grape, with vintners, winemakers and industry experts on hand to help guide you to a more complete understanding of each wine being sampled. And with more than 500 of the finest wines from around the globe, you’ll have your work cut out for you.
Are you an experienced enologist with an impressive cellar? The VIP Tasting is the ticket for you. Special reserve wines are poured during the VIP Tasting from 5-7 PM that are unavailable during the Grand Tasting. Also, the limited number of people with access to the VIP Tasting allow for reflection and conversation with the winery representative at each table.
Just getting into the game? No problem, the Grand Tasting (7-9 PM) is the perfect way to start. Had good luck with Italian wines? Sample from a list of dozens to find your perfect match. Love the oakiness of the California Chardonnay? Spend your time in the domestic wine area to discover the best.
For your convenience, we’ve split the sampling into two distinct areas, offering one entire club lounge for international wines and another club lounge for domestic wines. Veteran or rookie, you are going to want to download and research our wine guide to plan your attack. It’s helpful to prioritize your sampling to maximize the experience. The 2015 Pittsburgh Wine Festival Wine Guide will be available here, starting about a month prior to the event. Please check back for details.
Also Included in the ticket are appetizers to keep you going, so please don’t forget to take a few moments to partake. You’ll thank us later.
See you all on May 7th
