Late Night Winos Tasting Series at FnB Restaurant – 11/16
FnB Restaurant – Scottsdale, AZ
FnB’s Pavle Milic gathered a group of fellow grape geeks and cork dorks to meet with a common goal: challenge their palates, keep their experience fresh and relevant and rub elbows with (and good-naturedly rib) others who share their passion. Using the ‘Deductive Tasting Format’ created by The Court of Master Sommeliers, you’ll taste very special wines (poured from bottles hidden in brown paper bags) and try to discern what’s in the glass. It’s structured but fun, and not at all hoity-toity! Small plates are served toward the end of the tasting and each week will have a specific theme. Limited to just six (6) guests.
