A #pinotmoment in Paris

Today is the international ‘share your love for pinot’ day. It’s all about telling people about your #pinotmoment. What’s your fondest memory of this elegant, fragile yet powerful grape?

With Miss Vicky Wine we decided to share a Parisian #pinotmoment with you. Catch it!

Of course, one cannot talk about pinot without mentioning the 2004 film Sideways that shot the varietal to fame with the famous sentence from main character Miles Raymond:

” It’s a hard grape to grow,  it’s thin-skinned, temperamental, ripens early. It’s not a survivor like Cabernet, which can just grow anywhere and uh, thrive even when it’s neglected. No, Pinot needs constant care and attention. You know? And in fact it can only grow in these really specific, little, tucked away corners of the world. And, and only the most patient and nurturing of growers can do it, really. Only somebody who really takes the time to understand Pinot’s potential can then coax it into its fullest expression. Then, I mean, oh its flavors, they’re just the most haunting and brilliant and thrilling and subtle and… ancient on the planet.”

So, now, what will you be drinking today?!
