After 12 years in San Francisco…The Atlantis Casino Resort Spa enticed us to bring The 13th Annual Pinot Noir Summit to Reno, Nevada. We could not be more thrilled! We’ve met the nicest and most enthusiastic people in Reno.

On the weekend of July 24th and July 25th, 50 incredible wineries will come together for The 13th Annual Pinot Noir Summit. Ticket sales will benefit the Autism Coalition of Nevada. More than 400 guests will gather to celebrate great wine and great food. Tickets are on sale at now.

Sommelier Christian O'KuinghttonsThe Pinot Noir Summit, an extraordinary wine experience can now be combined with a luxurious stay at the fabulous Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, a Four Diamond resort. Named by USA Travel as the TOP casino resort property outside of Las Vegas and one of the top ten spas in the world for four consecutive years.
Under the direction of Sommelier Christian O’Kuinghttons both the Atlantis Steakhouse and Bistro Napa at the Atlantis Casino have been awarded Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. O’Kuinghttons states, “This event is so unique because it brings together the wine industry with those who just love wine. There’s something for everyone at this event, including an All Things Pinot Pairing Luncheon, where guests can experience some of the country’s best Pinot Noirs. The event is more than Pinot, though, and includes the best wineries from around the country, who bring their finest wines, Pinot or otherwise.”

Many of the WINERIES at The 13th Pinot Noir Summit are small wineries with limited production creating an opportunity to discover wines and wineries that are hard to find. Because Affairs of the Vine has tasted these wines three times in blind tastings, you can be sure that these are amazing wines!
