The Dollar Sip: A Courtyard + Cork Event
Join us for the final Courtyard + Cork event of 2020 featuring red wines. For this tasting we’re putting a spin on things. Over three small courses you’ll try six wines, in pairs. Each pair will be the same varietal or blend from the same vintage and region but one will be a budget-friendly wine and the other a bit pricier. You’ll BLIND taste these against each other to see which you prefer and if there is any inherent difference between lower-priced and higher-priced wines.
September 19 from 6pm to 7:30pm (rain date September 20)
Limit to 12 people (8 minimum with reservations made 1 week in advance)
Price: $60/$50 per person/member
The member discount will apply to the entire party if a Museum member makes the reservation.
