01:13pm on 08/18/2017 @michiganwines You're telling me that the Pinot Noir Day quote comes from Michigan's own Ms. Madeline Triffon??? Happy Pinot Noir Day everyone - now tell us which one is your favorite. “The most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, they make the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic” -Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon
