Pinot Palooza: a great consumer Pinot event in Wellington

pinot palooza

Yesterday afternoon I popped into Pinot Palooza, a consumer Pinot Noir event that hails from Australia but which has been transplanted to New Zealand for the day before the Pinot 2017 event in Wellington. 117 producers from all over New Zealand were present, and it had a great vibe. I wandered around chatting to people and drinking some lovely Pinot Noir. It was a great way to begin this Pinot-focused week. Here are some pictures (credit: some were taken by Hannah Burns who stole my camera).
