Create Your Own Blend at Wine Club Event

The Cleveland Wine Club is giving you the opportunity to craft your own wine blend at a special event at the Cleveland Wine School scheduled on Thursday, January 21, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
This may not be the year you fulfill all your New Year's resolutions, but this could be the year you create a wine of your very own. A wine that is uniquely you.

At this event, sponsored by the Cleveland Wine Club, you and a few friends (perhaps new friends!) will be given three bottles of wine - a Cabernet, Syrah, and Merlot. After being given some instruction and tips on how to best blend the wine, you will get to work on coming up with a blend that is full not only of your personality but one that is also wonderfully drinkable and has a good nose, legs, and finish. You will also come up with a name for your wine and you will create a label as well.

Once you are finished crafting your masterpiece, the Cleveland Wine School's Marianne Frantz will do a walk-through and do a blind-tasting of the wines. She will select the wine with the best characteristics and the person who created it will win a cash prize.

The Wine School does not provide food, so please bring something for the food table (cheese, bread, dips, chocolate, anything goes. Plates and silverware will be provided.

The cost for this event is $30 per person (cash only please). Just pay at the door.

To attend this event, RSVP by visiting the Cleveland Wine Club website.  You can join their wine club by simply providing your email address and creating a password and then RSVP for the event. Simple! You will also then be made aware of other great wine events. The Cleveland Wine School is located at 3355 Richmond Road Ste. 191, Beachwood. Phone (216) 831-9919 for more information.
