EVENT DESCRIPTION

Syrah (Shiraz)
- A very mis-understood and under appreciated grape varietal as are the other reds that incorporate the wines of the RHONE category.
Be it GSM, MSG, SGM, SMG or whatever blend it maybe …. we will taste up to 18 wines (21 if sold out) from the various categories.  All wines will be tasted blind, and revealed.

Which did you prefer… which style?  Which brands??? All tastings include a petite cheese plate… and many laughs.  You do not need to be a wine geek to participate but wine geeks will appreciate the efforts we make, the quality of the wine we pour and the service we provide.  Lets bring the best in the business together and enjoy one wild and crazy flight… of 18-21 Blind Rhone Wines.
