Blind Wine Tasting and Fellowship Dinner

January 18 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

- $35

Put your palate to the test at ESB’s Blind Wine Tasting & Fellowship dinner! 

Guests will come together to enjoy a “Fellowship Dinner”, where each guest brings a food item (starter, side, or entree) to share family style…i.e. Potluck and sit down blind wine tasting of 6 red Rhone varietal wines. Members will gather, taste three single varietals, enjoy dinner, then proceed to a blind tasting where palates and red wines will be put to the test. Don’t want to cook? No problem! Call up our friends at C’est Cheese, Tino’s or Whole Foods and have them put together a cheese, charcuterie, or apertivo platter; or order a dish from your favorite restaurant to share with friends.


The theme of this blind tasting is: high quality Rhone varietal red blends vs. pure Rhone red varietals. Can you tell the difference between a 100% Syrah, Mourvèdre, or Grenache versus a blend, such as a GSM? Whether a beginner or advanced super taster, this blind tasting is a great opportunity to grow your wine knowledge and palate. The education doesn’t stop there…not only are your testing your palate, but you’re putting the wine to the test, correlating the perceived quality of a blend against that of a single varietal. What do you prefer? Why 100%? Why the blend? How do the varietals affect the overall flavor and aromatics of the blend?
