Varietal tasting time is here, winos! Get your sip on at the Pinot (that'd be Noir) Days Festival, which runs tonight through Sunday. The main event is Sunday's four-hour grand tasting at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Fort Mason seems to be considered the primo (and rather obvious) spot for such events. Tickets are $50 for the grand tasting, with 400 samples from 200 Pinot Noir producers. Advanced tickets are highly recommended. Other related Pinot Days events include schmantzy dinners at Pres a Vi in the Presidio, as well as concerts. Cost: $80-$150, which suggests there's more than one way to get your sip on.
