Pinot Noir has the well deserved reputation of being a finicky and difficult grape to cultivate. It thrives in cooler climates like Burgundy and the Willamette Valley in Oregon, but is also widely planted throughout sun-drenched California.
Pinot Noir reflects its terroir, or place of origin, more than just about any other variety. That’s certainly part of its broad appeal.
