Are you a wine connoisseur? I happen to be a cheese connoisseur myself, unfortunately most people prefer the term cheese addict. Lucky enough for me, some Winthrop Estate guests held a wine and cheese tasting recently where the guests enjoyed a variety of red and white wines accompanied by a wide selection of cheeses. However, this event was not held in the traditional wine tasting format where the taster is afforded the name and story of the wine before it is tasted. Instead, each guest was asked to taste a selection of 6 anonymous wines and then rate them on a scale of 1 to 10. Interestingly enough, the most expensive bottle did not win the taste test. After the event was finished, we shared the results to our friends at Nejaime’s Wine Cellar, a local liquor store, and they were interested in our rather peculiar selection that featured such a wide range of quality. Check out their website for a large selection of wines and spirits here.
