On April 21st from 1-5 p.m., Z and I attended the 2012 Wine Riot at Park Plaza Castle. Put on by the Second Glass, the event was chocked full of wine samples (separated by region/country), munchies (from Upper Crust, Cabot, TAZA, and Roxy's, to name a few), and wine education classes.
On this particularly humid day, Z and I sampled an array of roses, chilled whites, and even some Chiantis from the Italian area. We also made sure to stop by the Bordeaux booth to say hello to Theresa - Bordeaux was kind enough to invite us to the event.
Z and I even attended a class called "Back That Class Up," where we sampled wines and guessed their prices - ranging from very cheap ($4) to very expensive (over $100). I, being the economical drinker I am, thought the $4 wine was the most expensive. (Yes, I am a cheap date). It was a really interesting class!
Overall, Wine Riot is one fun event. Although we felt guilty spending a few hours indoors during such a beautiful day, it was still a fantastic way to spend a summer-y Saturday afternoon.
What's your favorite way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon?
