2nd Sun Valley Culinary Institute’s “Ultimate Wine Tasting Challenge”
Here’s a big challenge for you wine lovers! A one of a kind wine tasting experience is yours at the Elkhorn Inn – Tuesday, July 25th with a $30 Tasting Fee.
8-10 different wines (varietal, based on grape used) will challenge wine lovers both ‘expert’ and amateur to identify the grape used. Served in brown bags will be 4 excellent whites and 4 reds to check off against a printed list that includes tasting characteristics of each wine to help in your decisions.
Gary Hoffman is representing the Advisory Board in hosting this event as a benefit for the SVCI, “In 40 years of wine tastings, never have I seen this entertaining and educational approach taken”. Wine tastings typically ask participants to rank one or two wines based on their preferences among them. In this exciting version, “The Ultimate Wine Tasting Challenge”, a prize and a trophy will be awarded to the person most successful in identifying the grapes used to create the wine, 8 total including Rousanne, Nebbiolo, …plus 2 tiebreaker wines selected to be used as needed.
Space is quite limited so applicants are urged to register quickly on the SVCI website. Starting time is 6PM prompt with a projected quit time of 7:30PM for those who want to hang around after tasting. Register at: www.sunvalleyculinary.org/upcoming-classes/brownbag-ze2pd
