We're excited to be one of the vendors at this year's World of Pinot Noir event, happening at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara February 29 - March 2, 2024. The event features 200 wineries and access to seminars, tastings, dinner pairings, networking and more.

Join our very own creamery co-owner, Michelle, for a guided cheese and wine tasting as part of the VIP Grand Tasting ticket with sessions that Friday and Saturday.

"We are beyond excited to be participating at this year's World of Pinot Noir event for a multitude of reasons," said Michelle Rudolph, Stepladder Creamery co-owner. "Our cheesemaking process is not so different from winemaking as our herd of farmstead goats forage the local terroir, giving the milk a natural, earthy flavor. It's what separates us from other creameries out there, just like local terroir plays a huge part in creating beautiful wines. I will be leading a VIP cheese tasting with wine pairings on Friday and Saturday during the event weekend. Hope to see you there!"

Whether at seminars, luncheons, dinners, or one of the Grand Tastings, guests will have the opportunity to meet winemakers, learn more about Pinot Noir, and taste thousands of wines from Argentina, Australia, Burgundy, Chile, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa Valley, New Zealand, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Santa Maria, Sonoma, Willamette Valley, and more.
