A lot of people tasted a lot of wine and voted, and now the results are in. Our Mondo Matchup red champion is the Fitz Roy Carmenere (aka: the little Carm that could). The Mondo Matchup white champion is the Kentia Albariño. The public has spoken and now these two fabulous wines will be available as glass pours. 

For those of who participated, thank you! The tournament was incredibly popular. Stay tuned for the 2019 Mondo Matchups which will begin next January.

Each week we pit wines against each other in an ALL OUT DEATH MATCH TO THE FINISH! Two wines enter, one will leave! 

Each Matchup includes 2 half glass pours of your choice of our red or white selections of the week served on a fancy tasting mat. Try each wine in a blind tasting and choose your favorite. Turn the tasting mat over to find out what you preferred. Vote in person at Mondo! or on Facebook using the hashtag #mondomatchup. Each week we tally the vote to declare a red and white champions. During March Madness we will pit the champions against each other to find out what wine reigns supreme! Stop in every week to try new contenders.
