Event description

Description

It's July 4th, 1976. In the wine world, France is the undisputed king, making wines of incomparable taste and quality... or so the world thinks. Wine merchant Stephen Spurrier invites some of France's top wine authorities to a blind tasting, where they will evaluate wines from upstart wine producer California as well as France. No one expects California to win.

In a stunning upset, both the top red and the top white spot are taken by not French, but Californian wines, and the world of wine is forever changed.

To honor of the 1976 Judgement of Paris, join your host Bruce Abbott, CSW, as we pit French and American wines against each other in a blind tasting event. Guests will score each wine blind, with the identity and origin of each wine only revealed at the end of the evening. Will French or American wines come out on top? Help decide at this premier wine event, featuring ten phenomenal wines along with five small plates inspired by French and American cuisine prepared by the incomparable chef Slava Martynets.
