What we're about

Get better at wine by tasting it blind. There are a lot of wine tasting meetups in the area, but I haven't found any yet that focus on improving at guessing what a wine is without seeing the bottle.

Blind wine tasting is expensive to do alone - join this meetup to find people to share bottles with!

Screwtop 🍷 May Blind Wine Tasting (#25)

Screwtop

THIS EVENT STARTS AT 6PM, PLEASE BE PROMPT.
Event RSVP Opens : Wednesday, May 11,[masked]:00 PM

🍷 What is blind wine tasting?
In a blind tasting you use your sense of smell, sight, and taste to try to deduce which varietal (wine grape) is in your glass.

🍷 Do I need to be a wine professional?
Definitely not - this group is experience diverse and we welcome both wine newbies and wine pros (and everyone else in between).

🍷 How does this work?
--Please arrive slightly before 6:00pm to grab a seat. Arriving before 6 will also give you some time to order happy hour food/drink if you like.
--Screwtop serves us two wine flights: 3 white wines around 6:15pm and 3 red wines around 7:00 pm. Each flight is $20. Food and other wines are also available for purchase.
--We will discuss each flight as a group and try to reach somewhat of a consensus. Then comes the big reveal where we discover if our guesses were right.

🍷RSVPlease:
--Screwtop has a limited amount of spots and if you are on the "going" list it means we are holding a space for you.
--If your plans have changed, please edit your RSVP (even if you're waitlisted) so that someone else gets sufficient notice time to attend in your place.
--We track our attendees list, and a late drop or no show might affect your participation at future events.

Hope to see you there !

This group is very experience-diverse and we welcome both wine newbies and wine pros (and everyone in between).

Verre will pour us two wine flights, one white and one red (3 of each, so a total of 6 wine samples) and we will discuss what we are tasting to try to solve the mystery together. After each flight is a big reveal where we find out just how right (or wrong!) we were.

🍷RSVPs: Verre has a limited amount of table space and is reserving much of that space for our 8 person group. Out of consideration to the business, the event hosts, and anyone on the wait list, please edit your RSVP as soon as possible if your plans change and you can no longer attend the event. If you are waitlisted please keep your RSVP response current.
