The "Colour Blind" Black Glass Wine Tasting Challenge

If you think it's easy to tell a white wine from a red wine without actually seeing it in a glass, then come take the Picotin Black Glass Wine Tasting Challenge!

On the fourth day of the fourth month, Picotin and The Local Nose invite you to the ultimate blind tasting event - it's not a contest to name rare wine vintages but instead a simple task to identify whether a wine is white or red. We will taste 8 wines entirely in BLACK Schott Zwiesel glasses, play a short wine trivia quiz on the wines we're tasting, and then those who identify the wine colours correctly and get the quiz questions right will win great prizes!

We'll keep the food visible, though, and promise great Picotin party snacks to pair with everything we taste...red meat with white wine and reds with fish... You won't know what you've paired with what until the end!!

To confirm your participation in this event, kindly prepay via this Paypal link as per usual.

    Just checking - as it stands we only have the following people confirmed: Tony, Moses + guest, Shalabh, Ivan, Alythea + 1 guest, Lena and Darric. If you have not paid, and want to come, could you please do so, as we need to confirm numbers with the restaurant. To those who have confirmed - see you tomorrow, looking forward to seeing who can guess the most!

    Thanks, Shalabh, Alythea! From past years' events, they were lots of fun. See if you can guess the colour would be the first one. :)
    Poonam, when you click the Paypal link above, it should take you to a Paypal payment gateway. Did you see a different page?

    Thank you people who let us know about the problem with the payment link. The event is most definitely not booked out (as of today). The link is now working, so you can prepay to secure your spot. Looking forward to the fun evening with you all on 4/4!
