At its best, Pinot Noir is the love child of power and beauty.Dan SullivanRosehall Run
I love vibrancy, freshness and purity of Pinot Noir and how it conveys its origins. Where he grapes were grown, the weather during the growing season and how the wine was made. It is so expressive of the winegrowing cycle that each year, parcel of vineyard and wine is unique. That’s what makes tasting great Pinot Noir so intriguing - it amplifies everything we work so hard to achieve in the vineyard and winery.Jay JohnstonHidden Bench
I aim for making Pinot Noir that sits somewhere between old world and new world style while always reflecting the characteristics of the terroir or ‘somewhereness’ - essential to the variety. Truly exceptional wines are born of their origins, not made - this statement could not be more appropriate than when applied to Niagara Pinot Noir.Shiraz MottiarMalivoire Winery
For me, great wine is silky smooth in feel, and Pinot Noir of all varieties evokes this sensation more often than any red grape. Call it velvet in a glass.Thomas PennachettiCave Spring Cellars

Pinot Noir is an unapologetic reflection of its origins. With a song that is funky yet refined, ethereal and authentic, no other grape returns the love you give it quite like the ‘heart breaker’.Taylor HulleyCoyote’s Run Estate Winery
