Competitive wine tasting comes to the Miami Valley this Thursday, Feb 28th at 6pm. Grapes of Gratitude is a team wine tasting event created to allow local nonprofits to raise money while participants blindly taste an array of wines of the same varietal.
Groups of 1 -3 people form a team and each team brings 3 of the exact same bottles of wine to be tasted. The first varietal chosen to showcase will be Cabernet Sauvignon. To participate your team will bring 3 identical bottles of a Cabernet Sauvignon to the event.
When your team arrives at the Dayton Grand Hotel for the event, you’ll check in your wine. The first two bottles are bagged and tagged for tasting. The third bottle is set aside to form the prizes for the winning teams. Guests taste all the wines while enjoying appetizers and rate the wines.
The team that brings the highest ranked wine will take home two thirds of the 3rd bottles, the 2nd place team take home one third of the prize wine adn the team that brought the lowest ranked wine get to take home the extra bottle of their own wine! If 2 or more teams bring the same wine, rankings can still differ depending upon the temperature of the wine, how long it has been open, etc.
So grab some friends and get your team together and buy your tickets now! Your $10 advance ticket ($15 at the door) will benefit the Associate Board of AIDS Resource Center Ohio for this first Grapes of Gratitude event. Grapes of Gratitude will repeat every other month, and the charity partner will rotate for each tasting.
