The Pittsburgh Wine Festival returns for its ninth year of tastings and educational seminars from more than 2,500 winemakers. The epic Grand Tasting corrals the sundry wine specialists into Heinz Field, where visitors will whiff, swish, and expound upon Dionysian delights from around the globe. Food vendors stand at the ready to fill up wine-soaked stomachs as live entertainment gets bodies grooving. Preceding the Grand Tasting, the elite VIP tasting event ushers in an exclusive 800 guests, who can revel in the smaller crowds and freely chat up the featured wine vendors before making their way to the main event. Vintners break out special wines for guests to sample and take home to adorn their wine cellars or to use as finger paint.

Pittsburgh Wine Festival

The Pittsburgh Wine Festival gathers more than 165 vendors who pour more than 500 diverse wines inside the Heinz Field East and West Club Lounges. Though many of the featured wines hail from countries such as France, Germany, Portugal, Argentina, and New Zealand, others call California, Pennsylvania, and the Pacific Northwest their home. As attendees wander between sips of reds, whites, and rosés, they sample food pairings and watch live entertainment.

Winery representatives and winemakers pour their diverse libations during the annual Grand Tasting, but also uncork specialty reserve wines at a VIP tasting. Here, smaller crowds grant visitors more time to speak with the vendors, and ask questions about fermentation or how to determine whether a wine will get along with their other bottles. Outside the main events, industry leaders also hold seminars on how to taste wine like a sommelier or pair wines to specific occasions. Additionally, private wine dinners raise funds for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
