What We Do
Pinot Noir is often described as the “Holy Grail of Wine” by those who are transfixed by its elegance, delicacy, subtlety and grace. Winemakers and enthusiasts alike are constantly questing for their next ethereal Pinot experience. This quest is at the heart of Pinot NOW’s reason for existence… to seek out and offer to like-minded enthusiasts rare, unique and hard-to-get examples of exemplary Pinots from wherever in the world fine Pinot Noir is produced by dedicated, devoted producers.
The quest for the Holy Grail of Wine is a never ending one - happily enough. We conduct our search with a passion that we share with our suppliers, customers and anyone seeking to broaden their horizons and understanding of this complex and tantalising grape.
On this website we aim to demystify pinot noir by providing as much information as we can about the wines we offer for purchase. You will find an ‘Information Sheet’ for each wine detailing tasting notes, vintage notes, winemaking data, winery and vineyard information, and reviews. We want to bring the people behind the labels to you too, with winery profiles and pictures; providing an insight into the history and personalities where we can.
As we have our finger on the Pinot Pulse, we will keep you up to date with features of interest (web-sites, news reports, articles, blogs, videos and images, centred around the wonderful world of pinot. Check out our news feed from time to time.
Actually, no. While pinot is our love and our focus, we do offer other varietal wines. All of the wineries that we work with are pinot specialist producers – but not necessarily exclusively so. Many of them produce other varietal wines with the same passion and dedication they apply to their pinots. We are proud to present these wines also.
The Personal Experience
We love to meet, greet, chat and share wonderful tasting experiences with fellow pinot devotees. So, whenever a good excuse arises we conduct tastings and dinners to showcase our wines. It might be a visiting winemaker, the arrival of a new overseas shipment, participation in an industry wine fair or a casual evening with a few open bottles of interesting wines. When the opportunity arises we will invite you to join us to share glass or two.
We also invite you to join our Mailing List. We will let you know of tastings, dinners, other events and special offers as they evolve.

You may order a single bottle if you wish; we welcome orders in any quantity or configuration, mixed orders are our specialty! Delivery charges depend on your location. You can check out the freight rates here. However if you order 12 bottles or more delivery is freight free.
When we receive your order, we’ll get in touch with you to confirm the availability of the wine(s), payment method, and advise you of any delivery charge that may apply.
If you would rather not use the shopping facility - perhaps you would like to discuss some of the wines with us prior to placing an order - you can email or phone us directly. We are always happy to talk with fellow wine lovers about our range, make some recommendations that might suit your tastes, perhaps put together a mixed pack of wines to fit your specified budget, or simply have a chat about what’s happening in the wide world of pinot.

We sometimes find it necessary to change carriers to ensure that we pass on to you the best possible rate at the time of your order.
Of course, you are most welcome to make arrangements to personally collect your order from our office or storage house. Or, if you wish, you can arrange to have your order shipped by your own carrier. Just let us know at the time you place your order and we will work out a suitable time with you for pick-up.
