Top Rack Or Brown Sack? - Blind Tasting For Fun

Top Rack Or Brown Sack? - Blind Tasting For Fun

"Value" vs. expensive wines... can anyone tell the difference?!

Friday, July 20, 2018
7:00 - 9:30pm

Regular price CHF 99.00 Sale

at Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

Includes 8 wines with 4 specially-prepared food pairing courses.

Why pay more for a bottle of wine? The answer is... maybe you shouldn't! Statistics prove that "experts" and "normal people" alike struggle to differentiate wines without a label and price tag.

Just for fun, we'll run this social Wine, Food, Wine! event as a blind tasting experiment: similar wine styles at bargain (~10 CHF), middle (15-25 CHF) and/or premium (30+ CHF) price points. Can you tell a difference? Which version do you prefer before we reveal the prices? Results are always surprising. Likely some bottles improve with specially-prepared classic food pairings... the only way to know is to try!

No wine knowledge required to enjoy yourself. Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of eating, drinking, chatting and learning.

Blind tasting?!

Just pretty fun event!
It ist pretty nice to know, that I am definitely a "expensive" wine drinker!
Thank you Robert and Stephanie once again!

Brilliant evening

Great way to spend a Friday night. Opportunity to try new grapes, different wines, meet brilliant people of all nationalities and enjoy some lovely food accompaniment. Can't recommend enough! Will definitely go again and recommend to friends.

Such a good mood

I found the event great - the wine and the surprisingly delicious food contributed a lot, but also the great group made up for a very fun and lively evening. I also enjoyed the choice of wines, maybe next time making it a bit more difficult would be also interesting. Will come back for sure :)

Great event with fantastic atmosphere !

nicely organized event, the food pairing is tasty and in a good quantity. Would be lovely to be able to have bit more discussions and interactions regarding the wines during the event. But well done!

Great event with great people

Hi Robert, it was a pleasure to participate at this event. I liked the selection of wines and the food. I liked the most the people.
Not sure what it can be improved... maybe the quantity of food? :P.
Loved the event, thank you so much.
