Description

Combine your love for food, wine and passion for a good cause at Forum 35’s Uncorked!

To mark this momentous occasion, the non-profit that this Uncorked will be supporting is Forum 35 Arts and Culture initiatives. Forum 35 is a community organization of engaged young men and women dedicated to improving and shaping Baton Rouge. Through its pillars of arts and culture, leadership, diversity, and service, Forum 35 works to empower young professionals to serve and improve the Baton Rouge community. The funds raised through this event will be used to support Forum 35's efforts.

How It Works

The varietal for this Spring 2019 event is - Malbec!

In addition to the wine competition, the City Club of Baton Rouge will be pulling names for door prizes including bottles of wine and free months of membership to the City Club!


How It Works:

Attendees will form teams of 1, 2 or 3 people and bring 3 matching bottles of Malbec. Two of the bottles will be bagged and numbered for a blind wine tasting and one will be put into the winner’s prize lot. At the conclusion of the festivities all scores are tallied, and the winners are recognized while the lowest scoring wine is returned to its rightful owner to take home.

Tickets are availble on this page and are $30 each. Tickets can also be purchased at the event for $35 on the day of the event. If you are unable to attend and would still like to support Forum 35, you can also donate through this page.

Teams can be registered here or at the door. Prize will be awarded to the best team name!


FAQs:

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Please be advised that all Uncorked events are strictly 21+ events.

What kind of wine does my team have to bring to the event?

The varietal for this event is Malbec, so your team should bring three identical bottles of Malbec. For example, if your favorite Cabernet is Beringer, then bring three bottles of Beringer Cab Sauv. Be sure the bottles are all the same name, winery, and year!

I don't feel like bringing Malbec. Can I bring a different wine instead?

We won't turn you away for bringing the wrong wine, but your team will be disqualified from winning the pool. It is also unlikely that the wine will be put out for people to taste. Instead, it will just go directly into the winner's pool. So it's best to bring the right varietal-- Malbec!

Do I have to bring wine to participate?

Yes. It is required that you or you and your team members bring the required three bottles of wine to participate. If you do not bring wine, you will not be admitted to the event.

I want to come, but I can't find anyone to be on a team with me. Can you set me up with a team?

We unfortuantely can't do the matchmaking, but we do suggest that you follow this event on Facebook. There, you can post on the event wall and look for other people who need a team or who are team of two that need a third. Post early to give yourself plenty of time to find a teammate!

What is the dress code?

Cocktail or business dress works great!
