The International Pinot Noir Celebration is a three-day event that features 70 of the world’s top Pinot Noir producers alongside world-class northwest cuisine. A long-standing tradition of the IPNC, the Salmon Bake dramatically showcases wild salmon roasted on alder stakes over a huge custom-built fire pit. Timberline Chef Jason Stoller Smith has participated in the IPNC for over 10 years, and the last five as the master of the Salmon Bake. In 2010, he took the Salmon Bake to Washington, D.C., where he built the massive fire pit on the front lawn of the White House and prepared salmon for a picnic hosted by President and Mrs. Obama.

The 31st Annual IPNC will be held July 28 – 30, 2017 at Linfield College in McMinnville, OR. Tickets for the Full Weekend as well as individual tickets for the Salmon Bake and Passport to Pinot are available Spring 2017. Register Online or by phone at (800) 775-4762.
