sold-outIt is a common belief that Pinot Noir is the most difficult grape variety to ‘get’…to understand. The wine made from this very ‘difficult to grow’ wine is sometimes feminine, subtle, or beguiling. But it often requires a buyer to pay much more than an average bottle to get a Pinot of worth and/or value.
