Welcome to the 2011 Pittsburgh Wine Festival!
The Festival returns for its 9th spectacular year this coming May 5, 2011. This year will feature exclusive wine dinners in select restaurants with winemakers and educators leading the tastings. We will again partner with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for private dinners with exclusive chefs and winemakers to raise money for Discovery and Innovation at UPMC. So far we have partnered with UPMC to help raise 7.25 million dollars over our long and productive partnership. We hope to further raise the bar this year. Finally, the VIP and Grand Tasting event at Heinz Field on Thursday, May 5th will again be the must-attend wine event of the year. Hundreds of wineries will be represented as will many educators and winemakers who will be on hand to help round out your knowledge of the art of winemaking, tasting and appreciation.
Please check back frequently for updates on attending wineries, winemakers, celebrity appearances and entertainment.
