Are you a Winocerous? With Bob Campbell MW

Starts: Thursday 10 October 2013 18:15
Venue: Villa Maria Estate
City: Auckland
Country: New Zealand
Details: Join us for a evening of fun as you challenge yourself and your team with this unique NZ Wine Tasting Challenge. We'll have Master of Wine Bob Campbell along to host the evening. The urban dictionary defines a Winoceros as "A person who takes extreme pride in thier ability to recognise and describe wine just by sniffing it" 

This game concept developed in NZ sees teams pitting themselves against the wine expert to taste, sniff and score wines blind with the objective of matching Bob Campbell's scores on the wine selection.

This event is a social team competition, so book yourself in as a group (6 is ideal) or if you don't have a team, no problem - we'll buddy you up with others.

This is a blind competition so we can't tell you what the wines are, what we can share is that there'll be wine on arrival and 5 wines tasted as part of the game. 

Cost: $39 includes wine tasting, light supper and coffee/tea (booking confirmed upon payment). Reservations required. Tickets are limited.
