Expensive vs Cheap Wines in a Guided Blind-Tasting Through Europe

Last time at our old location (Red Marlin), before we move over to the Marriott Marquis.

In this wine tasting dinner, we will have one cheap and one expensive bottle of each grape/region combination. Throughout the evening, we will go through 5 sets of 2 wines, tasting a total of 10 different bottles at 2 ounzes each. For example, we could compare a cheap Rhone Valley Syrah with a very expensive one, side by side, and then do the same thing for 4 other grapes.

Enjoy the blind-tasting commentary of professional sommeliers attending this tasting.

We will all try to guess which grape and region we are dealing with in each pair of wines, and of course the critical question will be which wine is the expensive one. We have a nice three-course dinner alongside. Wine cost is $60, plus dinner expense.

Look forward to an educational and fun blind-tasting dinner that will bring your tasting skills to a new level.

We will try to pick some special wines that are well worth our expense. Any important varietal from around the world is fair game this evening, with the promise that the specific bottles must be from one of the best regions of that varietal.

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.
