Wine Riot Summer Smackdown Series
Prepare to riot for the wine! On Saturday, September 10th, 2016, Wine Riot, the newly opened South End retail store from co-founders Tyler Balliet and Morgan First, will bring the six-week Summer Smackdown Series to a close with the World Championship event at South End’s Villa Victoria, from 7:00PM – 10:00PM.
Throughout the summer, experts from the Wine Riot team have pinned eight of the most popular wine regions against each other and gave guests in attendance the chance to vote their favorite to the next round. For the grand finale, oenophiles can taste wines from California to Australia, sampling the best of reds, whites and rose wines. Featured wines from each battle will be available in full glass pours, as every ticket-holder will receive three full-glass pour drink tickets.
There will be live battles and competitions, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese serving delicious grub, face-painting and flags from around the world to rep each favorite team, as well as music, tattoos, and more. Live voting will be available on the Wine Riot app, and will be monitored on the Big-Screen throughout the evening to keep score.
As always, all wines will be available for purchase, and ticket-holders will have access to 1-oz pours at the wine tasting bars, with three full-glass drink tickets. Additional tickets may be purchased for $5 each, and Roxy’s Grilled Cheese will be available for purchase only.
