March Wine Madness 2013 - Smooth Red Bracket Tasting

  • This location is shown only to members

It's that time of year again - time for the Big Dance and time for March Wine Madness. First, a big thank you for all of our member hosts who have offered to graciously open their homes to taste the wines in each bracket. The brackets are available in the 'Files' page under the 'More' tab.

The brackets are as follows: Bold Reds: hosted by Jeff Dean, Smooth Reds: hosted by Kathy Clancy, Semi-Dry Whites: hosted by Kerri Grote, and Semi-Sweet Whites: hosted by Anne Peters. Each bracket tasting will have 16 slots available. Sign up soon as these will fill quickly.

This is the posting for the Smooth Red Bracket Tasting

You will find a PERK coupon for Ray's Wine & Spirits by clicking on the "More" tab at the top of our web page and follow the drop down menu to "Files." The PERK is listed at the top above the bracket and titled Ray's March Wine Madness 2013 PERK. Click on it and the PDF should be easily printed. You will be required to present this PERK at Ray's in order to enjoy the 10% discount during March Wine Madness. Retain this PERK for the duration of the March Wine Madness event and present it each time you visit Ray’s (12 bottles per visit limit. Excludes email wine offers, previous purchases, special orders and any other already discounted wine.) Even without the discount, however, I can assure you that you will not find lower wine prices anywhere else in the Milwaukee area.

Each guest at all bracket tastings needs to bring one bottle from the bracket being tasted. Also, when you RSVP, you must indicate which bottle you (and your guests) will be bringing to the event so we can avoid any duplicates. A helpful tasting form is also available in the files page under the more tab.

Full instructions on how the entire March Wine Madness event will work will be emailed next week. Mark your calendars for April 6th to taste the final four and sign up for your favorite bracket tasting event in February. Then sign up for the Final Four event as soon as the event is open for RSVPs in mid-March.

    i went to Theif Wine from the office at noon, but they dont open til 3 so their out. I went to Otto's on my way home and because the list is Rays it is a little like going best buy & American for a Tv. Not quite the same items.... They have a Poppy, but it is a different poppy than rays. & poppy is already listed duplicate times. So i got the Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2010 and that is what I will be bringing along tomorrow.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
