Weekly Tasting – Blind Tasting
CataVinos Wine Shoppe
3063 N. Alvernon Way
Thursday, Friday, Saturday March 29,30,31 4-8 PM (Art Opening Saturday March 31)
$10.00 for a flight of six wines
($8.00 with take home wine purchase over $10, FREE with case purchase)

Here’s how it works. You go in for a tasting and get blindfolded then you taste six wines. Oh come on! Do you really believe that? No really, the bottles are bagged with mixed up the tasting sheets and you connect the tasting notes with the wine that is in your glass. If you correctly identify all the wines, you get a free tasting. The challenge is yours.

Everybody says that this tasting is always so much fun because it’s a great game and you come to realize that you know more than you thought you did. Or maybe you realize that you don’t generally taste wine,  you simply drink it.
