Hello Wine Enthusiasts!
During the months of February and March the Milwaukee Wine Lovers will be enjoying a myriad of wines from the United States and Europe in an Old World versus New World Ryder Cup March Wine Madness event, and pit them against one another by voting each week during the month of March until we have our Final Four. We have changed the brackets up a bit this year to include two white brackets to ensure that we have at least two white wines and two red ones in the Final Four competition. Once the Final Four have been selected, they will be revealed and tasted at Ray's Wine & Spirits Tasting Room on April 6th until we have selected a winner in what we hope to be a slam dunk competition, while we watch one of the actual Final Four games that evening! Bracket Tastings will be made available to try as many of the 64 wines as possible in the March Wine Madness competition during the month of February. Look for the Bracket Tastings to be posted on our website soon and sign up quickly, as space is limited.
Using the 2013 March Wine Madness bracket document available on our website under "Files" in the “More” drop-down menu view and/or print the bracket. You may taste any or all of the wines, but I encourage you to taste any two that you are voting upon within a match-up. You are strongly encouraged to attend one or more of the bracket tastings that are available during the month of February, thanks to our member volunteers who have agreed to open their homes. This competition is meant to be fun, so don't worry if you are unable to taste them all. If you favor reds, taste and vote on those, and visa versa if you are a white wine lover. If you are familiar with some of them, then try the unfamiliar one and vote for your favorite of the two.
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.
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.
In the meantime, In Vino Veritas!
