It’s that time again, when we pit wines against each other in an ALL OUT DUEL TO THE DEATH!!! It’s our annual blind tasting where you get to pick the winners that will go onto the finals in a BATTLE ROYALE. Each week we will feature a new red matchup and white matchup. You get 2 half glasses of the selections of the week served on a fancy blind tasting mat. Taste the wines, decide what you like best, then turn the mat over to discover what it is and submit your vote. The winners from each week will go on to the next round of matchups in March. When everything is said and done, we will crown a Red Matchup and White Matchup winner! It’s like basketball but better, because it includes wine! Stop in every week to try new contenders.
