Red blends wine tasting

November 9 @ 12:00 pm - 3:45 pm

Red Wine - Fort Collins Liquor Store - Wilbur's Total Beverage

We will be pouring four red blends picked from our red blend sale. Come tasting the variety that can come from blending.

Winemakers blend grapes because it allows them, in a sense, to design a wine. A little Merlot can help soften Cabernet’s tannins; a touch of Syrah can give some oomph to watery, cheap Pinot. In many regions, blending is traditional: Rioja, for example, historically blends Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha. On the other hand, many new, affordable red blends are simply concocted for mass appeal—lots of superripe, dark fruit and not very much acidity—using whatever varieties will do the trick.

Our in store tastings are free, however everyone must have a valid ID to be able to taste (regardless of age). Bring your friends and come visit us in the gift ware section in the southeast corner of the store.
(We want to have a great experience tasting different beers and wines every week with our costumers. Please understand that we do up hold all state rules that are posted in store regarding pouring a controlled substance, and reserve the right to refuse service.)
