It’s time for another Wine Down! Join us for our spring Wine Down on April 18th for a unique wine-tasting contest! Rules of the Game: Put together a team of 1-3 participants. Each team brings three identical bottles of Sauvignon Blanc (two chilled). The chilled bottles are anonymously bagged, and the third is placed in “the pot.” Teams are assigned numbers, and participants are provided a score card and complimentary MAX wine glass. Participants taste and score the wines. Scores are tallied, and the team with the highest total score wins the entire pot, except one bottle. The lowest-scoring teams bottle will be returned! Registration required. $15 per person. Free for MAX members.
