The ACT Art Gallery becomes a lively blending room in the second of four unique, interactive ‘fun-raisers’ this season, in support of The ACT Arts Centre’s programs.
Your event begins with an introduction to some unusual, rising and celebrated Rhône Valley varietal wines, and their regions and characteristics.
Seated in groups, you and your table mates will then taste, blend and judge the wines each group collaboratively creates during the evening, finally awarding “Best Blend of the Night” to the team who best tickled your taste buds.
The evening culminates with tasting a ‘benchmark blend’ paired with specially prepared French-themed small bites from Whisk Catering, to enjoy how these wines enhance the food of the region. Your guide for the evening is Robert Caron of Univins Wine and Spirits and a former Cellar Assistant for the renowned Tablas Creek Vineyards in California among other wineries.
Perfect for new-comers to the world of wines and long-time tasters alike.
