Wine Blending on Wheels both challenges and entertains the wine expert and beginner alike. It can be presented in either a relaxed or competitive format. Your group will be divided into teams and provided with the proper enological tools to blend a selection of high-end varietal wines into a killer red wine blend. Graduated cylinders, pipettes, beakers, tasting glasses and most importantly, great, Napa and Sonoma Valley red varietal wines will be provided. In conjunction with Bin to Bottle, Napa Valley’s premier custom crush winery, we will provide a selection of premium 100% varietal wines for your group to blend during the program. All of the wines provided come from vineyards producing ultra premium Napa and Sonoma Valley brands. Each team will strategize, measure, blend and taste until they feel they have concocted the best blend from the provided pure varietals. A blind tasting will determine the best wine. During the judging each team will nominate a “taster” to be on the panel along side our professional wine judge. The judges will make their choices as to which wine they prefer. Votes will be tallied, the winning wine announced and the bottling process will begin. Yes we said bottling process. Each participant will be taking home a bottle of the winning wine.
Once we have the winner, we will bottle, cork, capsule and label the winning wine. Now that is what we call Wine Blending on Wheels. This program can be enjoyed at any location you select. Or, if you would like to travel to the beautiful Napa Valley, we can facilitate the program at Bin to Bottle’s tasting salon and add a private tour of the facility to end the day.
