"World of Pinot Noir" festival wraps up in Shell Beach

The weekend-long celebration of Pinot Noir wrapped up at the Cliffs Resort in Shell Beach Sunday.

More than 50 Pinot Noir producers poured their wines for Sunday's brunch and walk-around tasting. It marked the final event in the "World of Pinot Noir" festival.

The annual gathering features hundreds of wines from all over the world and right here at home. Attendees say there really is something for everyone.

"I'm a big local wine kind of guy, I like the locals, but it's nice to see all kinds of different wines from different regions, and I think that's nice too," said Eric Bartell, who lives in Santa Maria.

Organizers say the festival continues to grow every year. The biggest event of the weekend drew more than 850 people.
