Wines to be Tasted

This will be an exciting showdown…Don’t miss it.

In this year’s showdown, five judges will taste some of the finest wines produced from 16 leading wineries across the globe. In this competition, every bottle of wine is judged on its own attributes to determine only two winning finalists for ‘Best in Show’ Red and White wines.

The evening begins with a tasty Prosecco Extra Brut, J.W, Valdobbiadene, Italy, upon arrival to “season the palate” for the beautiful wines to follow.  More than 30 wines will be offered including the wines participating in the competition.
