It's Pinot Noir day on August 18th and time (thinly veiled excuse) to celebrate one of the world's most popular wine grapes. Pinot Noir is a thin-skinned grape, that produces wines with an intensity that oozes summer flavours of ripe cherries, wild strawberries and crushed berries. Add to that a velvety smoothness and an underlying complexity and you have a silky wine that’s hard to beat.

Pinot Noir is a red wine created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes, the species Vitis vinifera. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine reflects the grapes having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit.

Its birthplace may be in Burgundy but nowadays leading examples can also be found on the shelves from New Zealand, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and even from Germany and Switzerland.

  • Did you know? Pinot Noir is now the UK's most widely planted grape accounting for 31.5% of vines, according to WinesGB.
