Full Details

In 1976 the Paris Wine Tasting (also known as the Judgment of Paris) pitted California and French wine against each other in a blind tasting. California won. The state was coming off a period widely considered the Golden Era, particularly for Cabernet Sauvignon, and it would continue after the victory. Join us for a guided tasting of wines from the era, tasting France and California side-by-side, including rare, aged wines that usually only meet the lips of those with deep cellars — or pockets. Christine Soto, sommelier and owner of Dead or Alive bar in Palm Springs, will be joined by one of this year’s Wine Enthusiast 40 under 40 Tastemakers 2018 importer Cory Cartwright to lead the tasting. We’ll start with a glass of contemporary California bubbles and continue with six more wines from the era (approximately three glasses of wine). Light bites will also be served. You’ll taste, learn and relive midcentury history with each sip.
