Wine Tasting Competition Tuesday, October 12

8 Oct

OK, if you like wine, this is the event for you!

This coming Tuesday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Powerhouse, the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and the Oxford Tasting Society are holding 3 Blind Wines, an event that invites teams of two people to select three bottles of the same wine and enter two of them in a tasting to win over the crowd—and a whole lot of wine!

If your team’s wine is chosen as the favorite, you win one bottle each of ALL of the wines brought to the event!

And what’s wine without a bit of cheese to cleanse the palate, right? YAC PR intern Catherine Cartwright divulged that there would be cheese and other nibbles on hand for those needing a break between tastings.

Wines can be purchased from PJ’s, Kiame’s or Star Package, and event organizers will pick them up and have them waiting for you on Tuesday.

Tickets are on sale at the Powerhouse for $25 per team or $20 for Arts Council/Tasting Society members. Official rules and wine order forms will be given at time of ticket purchase. All proceeds benefit the Arts Council and the Oxford Tasting Society.

UPDATE 10/14: What a fun event! If you didn’t make it out for this one, don’t miss the next. Lots of great wines to taste and the perfect way to pick out some new favorites. My team’s wine was only one vote away from winning!
