EVENT DESCRIPTION
______
Help us consume $5000 worth of collectable wine plus a multi-course meal at one of Los Angeles' most exclusive restaurant venues.  Our 1-bottle per person policy is in force…with the dinner targeting 16 total guests.  Served in flights of three - we taste blind and guess; which is Barolo / which is Brunello or Super Tuscan and then we reveal…and discuss. It is fun, competitive and you need not know anything about the wines to have a great time. However, the most savvy of wine collector will tell you that the wines do not get much better than this...  Note:  Please UBER or LYFT to this event - we want you to arrive and depart safely… valet parking is also available for an additional fee.
