Monte Carlo Wine Tasting Game

Atelier M

Buy your tickets here - http://www.dubaivinefestival.com/monte-carlo/ Are you brave enough to gamble on your senses? Test your palate in this unique blind tasting challenge where you bet your corks on guessing the grape variety, region and other grapey things! This tasting experience includes a selection of 6 wines served with light nibbles Las Vegas is full of games of good luck, but the Monte Carlo Tasting is a game of good taste. It’s played on a table similar to roulette, but there is no spinning wheel. Instead, you taste through a series of six classic wines and place your bets on the country it's from, whether it has been in an oak barrel, the grape variety (limited to the selection of grapes listed on the table), the vintage, and more. Go all in when you feel confident about what you taste, and practice restraint if you’re not quite sure what you’re tasting. Double your chips (or, in this case, corks) for each guess you get right and see who has the most at the end of the tasting. How tasteful (or lucky) are you?
