Details

For our first Quini WineUp we will explore wine tasting. This is the FIRST Quini WineUp To Be Held in the U.S.A!! There is no better way to educate about wine tasting than to use Quini. We will sample wines and review the 5-step process involved. What do we see, smell and taste? Let’s learn while using Quini technology and then be amazed at the group tasting results.
Below are the details about this and future WineUps. Please be aware 6:30-7 is time if you will need help setting up a Quini account or other technical support. Event starts at 7 and you will need a device with Quini on it for the WineUps.
As always please bring a wine snack to share.
This is another exciting First for our club!

What Is A WineUp

Those of you who have come to or been involved in the club for some time are very familiar with Quini. The Franklin Wine Club was the FIRST IN USA to hold at tasting event using Quini in 2014. Today like to announce a new idea.

Quini WineUps

Offering more than just a wine tasting experience. You and our club can also be rewarded and enter for great prizes!

Each month I/we will choose a wine theme and hold a tasting/education event.

The main concept of the Quini WineUp is to share a social, fun, wine tasting where we will expand our wine knowledge and experience using Quini. We will get together once per month to share our wine experience and record our impressions using the interactive Quini app which is designed to be fun and playful. The reviews we make using Quini are meant to be shared, and if you choose you may follow one another through the Quini app.

Quini is more than just recording whether you like or do not like a wine. Quini's five step tasting process reminds and teaches how to focus on all aspects of the wine to develop a complete impression of the wine. By focusing on each the eye, nose, mouth, finish and an overall opinion you are able to pinpoint what makes each wine memorable and appealing or not. Quini provides you a record of regions, varietals and wineries the you tend to enjoy the most and keeps a history of all your tastings. With the detail provided in each wine tasting Quini is also able to provide incredibly personalized recommendations specific to your own wine palate.

Group and Group Member Rewards

For every 400 tasting reviews completed in the WineUp, Quini will ship 6 special wines not readily available in the local area –These wines will be raffled off to club members that attend the Wineups.

Group members have the opportunity to receive entries for a wine tasting tour by reviewing wines outside of the wine tasting groups and posting them to social media. For each review posted to social media and noted by Quini (outside of the regular monthly WineUp tastings), you are entered to win a fully paid, multi-day wine trip along with a guest. Value up to $5,000! This year it’s three nights, four days in the beautiful Okanagan Valley region, BC, Canada.

What does this mean???
Each Wine Up if we taste 6 wines and have 30 people that’s 180 wines towards the 400 goal of Free Wine!! So every two Wineups we get wines to raffle.

Also don’t forget our Quini loyalty program!!

You can get Riedel glasses for 25 and 50 wines you review.
