CORK OFF – BATTLE OF THE BOTTLES

This is the easiest and best part…

  • Walk around and taste the wines.
    • TASTE, this is not a chugging contest!
    • Make notes on your ballot as you work through all the wines.
  • Enjoy the complementary bites of foods and bottles of water.
  • Snap some pictures in front of the photo wall.
  • Dance to the music.
  • Listen for the DJ to call for ballots.
    • Mark your ballots and turn in, one entry per person.
    • We will tally and announce.

 

And the Winning Team is…

  • The team that brought the winning wine will be awarded all but one of those third unopened bottles.
  • The team that brought the wine with the least votes will take the walk a shame and pick up their bottle to take home!

 

LET’S BATTLE!
