BTW, Robin, we saw your Hot Brown judging on TV this week. A Yankee didn't really have a chance, did he?

I know pricing is very competitive here in the Chicago, but there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get some good Pinot' at a "reasonable" price.

Hi Joe and welcome to the Wine Lovers Page. A friend of mine owns the largest Pinot Noir vineyard in NY State and I can confirm what you are saying first hand. His winery makes only PN. To make a world class Pinot Noir is different than making other wines. Low yields, hand picking, sorting bunches, protecting the vines in winter, plus all the vinification costs you mentioned. His wines retail for $46/bottle or $27 for futures and I believe they are a good value. Other local wineries sell Riesling, Chardonnay and Cab Franc for $12 - $20 and hybrids for less than $10, but a good Pinot Noir is very special.Joe Sage wrote:Oregon pinot noir is terribly expensive to grow. ....

Welcome leenelsen to the WLDG. Back in '75, when I was a wine newbie, my cousin, who was more knowledgeable than I was said "The difference between a $5 and a $10 bottle of wine is worth it." $35 + bottles of wine are usually worth it, but I tend to treasure them for special occasions.leenelsen wrote:What used to a really good wine for about $15 is now $25 to $35 and just not worth it There is too much good wine out there to even try to mess around with a Pinot anymore.
